A pack of three BR design 13-ton sand tippler wagons lettered for working from the BR concrete plant at Taunton.

The Taunton site produced pre-cast concrete components to build station platforms, fencing, lineside huts and cable trunking. These wagons were used to bring in sand for the production of the concrete and to deliver the cast parts to work sites.

The Seacow bogie ballast wagons were rebuilt in the 1980's from the standard Sealion design with the addition of air brake equipment, allowing these wagons to be moved by the Railfreight speedlink trains if required. The rebuilding has extended the useful life of these wagons and this model carries the maroon livery of their current owners EWS.

Bachmann Branchline OO 38-404A SR 25 Ton Pill Box Brake Van BR Departmental Weathered

Sometimes known as Pill Box vans these guards brake vans were designed for the Southern Railway in the 1930s, showing the steady development from the short wheelbase brake vans of earlier years towards the familiar BR standard design of the 1950s. The longer wheelbase (distance between the axles) provided a better ride for the guard, also allowing an increase in the weight and therefore effectiveness of the hand brake. Side lookout duckets allowed the guard to keep an eye on the running of the train and to watch for signals which may need him to apply the brake to help bring the train to a halt.

This model is painted in the British Railways engineering department olive green livery.

The BR engineers' Grampus is being produced for the first time as a ready-to-run model. The plain black livery was commonly applied by the engineering departments, even when the official livery colour was different and was still seen well into the 1980s.

Engineering wagons have long been neglected, the Grampus was one of the BR engineers principal open wagons. Developed from the last GWR ballast wagon design everything that needed to be moved to a remote worksite could be loaded into Grampus wagons. The long length wagons easily accomodated crossing timbers (extra-long sleepers), while full drop sides allowed ballast and spoil to be unloaded easily, while the removable ends allowed longer loads to be accomodated.

Model of a BR Mk.1 design BG gangwayed full brake coach with guards' office and hand brake in service with one of the BR engineering departments.

The railway engineers departments were divided into areas of specialisation, principally mechanical (locomotives & rolling stock), civil (track and infrastructure) and signal & telegraph (signalling and communications). Each department used spare coaching stock for a range of purposes, from moving stores to mobile workshops. Vehicles fitted with hand brakes were the first choice as these coaches would often be stored during the week and these vehicles could also be used as both barrier coaches and as guards' vans for moving other vehicles between depots and repair works.

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 33-831 BR ex-Southern Railway 25-Ton Queen Mary Bogie Guards Brake Van BR Signal & Telegraph Engineers Red & Yellow SatLink Livery

The Southern Railway constructed a number of bogie brake vans to provide smooth riding vans for guards on express goods and parcels trains. Initial examples being rebuilt from redundant electric unit parcels cars these vans ride like a coach, in additon to having good weight and an efficient brake.

Many of these vans survived in BR ownership, latterly with the engineering departments who appreciated the combination of a mess/riding van and tool storage in the verandahs either end. This example allocated to the S&T (signal & telegraph) engineers department has been painted in the departments' own 'SatLink' livery.

Model of a LMS 57-foot composite coach after being adopted by the BR engineers and painted in the overal olive green scheme used for engineering vehicles. Completed with a weathered finish, as engineering vehicles were almost never cleaned!

When withdrawn from service many coaches were still in a weatherproof and usable condition. Frequently these old but servicable coaches would be re-used, sometimes for many years.
 
The engineering departments often acquired old coaches for a number of tasks, including as crew riding vehicles for major tack-relaying projects and breakdown gangs. In the 1960s a large fleet of pre-nationalisation coaches were used in connection overhead electrification projects, some with their rooves fitted with working platforms.

Bachmann Branchline OO 38-800 Ransomes & Rapier 45 Ton Breakdown Crane SR Black

New model announced 2015. Pricing to be advised
We are taking orders for the breakdown crane models, please select the 'Click and Collect' payment option in the checkout process. We will contact you to advise our sell price and arrange payment when the models are expected to be released.

An exciting new addition to the Bachmann Branchline range, the Ransomes & Rapier 45-ton steam crane. These cranes were built as breakdown cranes, able to lift wagons and coaches singly or in pairs able to lift the heaviest of locomotives. The cranes were also used for routine infrastructure and permanent way duties, being able to lift bridge girders into position and assist with erecting signal and later overhead electrification gantrys.
A batch of these 45-ton lifting capacity cranes was built in 1940 to provide new and higher rated cranes (previously 36-ton lifting capacity cranes were common) to the railway companies during WW2. Being of a consistant design and quite new in 1948 these cranes served long into the British Railways years, still being deployed to accidents and engineering projects in the 1980s, sometimes in preference to newer diesel cranes! The two Southern region cranes were the last steam cranes on BR when sold into preservation in 1989.
