The Parkside Dundas range of plastic kits cover a wide variety of coaches and wagons used on narrow gauge lines in the UK. We are listing a selection of useful kits, concentrating on stock suitable for use with the Lynton & Barnstable rolling stock from Peco and Hejlan and wagons used by the British military services suitable for use with the forthcoming Bachmann WW1 locomotives and stock.

We do not normally stock these items but can obtain them quickly to complete orders. Delivery in 10-14 days can be expected.

A detailed plastic kit building a model of the WW1 War Department class D bogie open wagon.

Many thousands of these wagons were built, being suitable for carrying most types of stores from ammuniton to rations and even able to be fitted to carry stretchers for the evacuation of the wounded.
After the end of the war these wagons were bought by narrow gauge railways and industrial operators, the full-length drop-side design being suitable for all types on minerals including coal and aggregate. The wagons were also purchased for use on large farm estates, including the potato farms operated by Smiths crisps.
While this wagon will be produced in a ready-to-run form by Bachmann kit building allows for greater variations to be recreated by altering the pieces during construction.

The new OO-9 couplers for modellers who wish to replace exisiting couplers, or keep a supply of spares. Supplied in two parts, which are easily assembled, the coupler will fit into a NEM355 pocket.


4 couplers per pack.

(Product Ref #4793)

These handy NEM355 type coupling pockets are ideal for use in conjunction with our GR-102 Couplers, and allow modellers to attach the coupling to any other type of vehicle, such as a scratch-built or kit-built wagon. The two halves of the pocket are simply glued together and then mounted to the wagon. The GR-102 Coupler can be inserted and removed as required.
Although produced with 00-9 in mind, there is no reason why these couplers and coupling pockets could not be used on other scales including N.

Supplied in packs of 8.

Please note that this pocket is designed for fixed body mounting of couplers. This will allow standard N gauge couplers to be fitted but may not be suitable for use with couplers relying on latteral displacement for some fucntionality, eg. delay action on Dapols' Easi-Shunt knuckle couplers.

Parkside plastic assembly kit building a model of the Vale of Rheidol railways' passenger coaches. These coaches are comparable in size to the Lynton & Barnstaple stock, providing the option for variation in passenger rolling stock for a narrow gauge model railway

These twelve identical bogie coaches were built for the opening of the railway in 1902. All twelve when built were 7 compartment 3rd class coaches, open above the seat backs, however, as the need arose some were converted to other uses. 2 coaches were converted into open 3rd class coaches by having their sides stripped above the waist and two large windows cut in each end.
This kit contains updated side and roof mouldings and can be easily converted into the later modified semi-open version.

A detailed plastic kit building a model of the WW1 War Department class E bogie open wagon with lower cenrtal well floor.

Similar to the more numerous D class the E class featured a lowered floor between the bogies forming a well suitable for carrying taller loads or for light weight loads like hay for horses. It appears both soldiers and later railway operators found these wagons rather inconvenient to use, the design of the upper drop doors leaving a bar along the side at floor level, preventing easy loading and unloading of the well section. While many found post-war buyers, it appears these were only used if no alternative wagons were available!
Bachmann are producing a model of the more common D class wagons, this kit offers an alternative to add variety to a wagon fleet. Kit building also allows the builder to alter a model during construction, either in prototype fashion to model a wagon with the well area boarded over, or more drastic alterations to create a side-less well wagon, or with sides altered to give full height doors hinged from the bottom of the well area.

These two coaches were built by the Festiniog Railway in the early preservation era using chassis from Hudson bogie flat wagons with bogies similar to the WW1 designs.

A number of narrow gauge railways had coaches built on former wagon chassis, often in the same semi-open style, including lines built to serve quarries and military depots, where passenger service was added later and coaches were built from stock on hand.

Plastic kit building a pair of WW1 type Hudson 4-wheel bogies.
The kit supplies parts to build these as single bolster wagons and a H girder load is supplied.

This kits can be used to build two of the WW1 wagon bogies for use under a wagon or coach, or to construct a pair of single bolster wagons. Single bolster wagons were usually worked as a pair and used to haul long loads like steel sections and timber by using the load itself as the connection between the bogies. A number of these wagons were used by the military services for logging operations during both world wars.

Robert Hudson Ltd of Leeds was one of the main suppliers of narrow gauge equipment in the United Kingdom, supplying a standard range of rolling stock suitable for temporary contractors lines and industrial railways.

This kit builds a model of the later (post WW2) steel bodied open wagons, an update of the earlier wooden bodied version, and many were built to replace worn-out ex-WW1 wagons. The robust construction of these wagons have ensured these are often found on preserved lines.

The 4-wheel wagons were light enough to be pushed by hand, but strong enough for locomotive haulage, so were first choice on operations where wagons had to be man-handled over temporary tracks from a worksite to the more permanent locomotive-worked tracks.

Parkside plastic kit building a model of the slat-sided wood bodied open wagons built by the Hudson company for the RAF.

These wagons were originally ordered for use around the ammunition depots of the RAF, the wagons generally becoming known as 'Bomb Trucks' as a result. Based on a standard Hudson wagon chassis, suitable for locomotive haulage , a basic slat sided body was fitted to ensure the bombs and sheels could not roll off, but the wagons would not be 'stolen' for carrying ballast, which might cause damage to the live weapons! A large number of these wagons were built, as several MoD ammunition depots had narrow gauge networks linking the storage bunkers and the type is often seen at presveration sites.

This kit builds a model of the early (inter-war) wooden bodied open wagons supplied by the Hudson company as general use open wagons. developed from the experience of WW1 service demands these wagons were light enough to be pushed by hand, but with underfarmes suitable for locomotive haulage. A large number were built and many have survived for further service on preserved lines.

The simple V form side tipping or skip wagons was the primary wagon type for contractors and aggregate railways. The wagons could be emptied quickly and easily by releasing the locking mechanism and pushing the top of the skip to over-balance it, dumping the load. Ideal for shifting earth and aggregates, even delivering ready-mixed cement!

The sand pits around Leighton Buzzard, now the home of the Leighton Buzzard narrow gauge heritage railway, operated a vast fleet of these wagons to move sand between the pits and sidings alongside the LMS mainline. Most narrow gauge railways have some of these wagons around for engineering service.

Plastic assembly kit building a model of the Welsh Highland Heritage Railways' 'Bro Madog Eisteddfod' coach.

This coach has been built by the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in recent years using the traditional method of adapting a wagon underframe and constructing a passenger coach body onto it. The result is a coach of a typical narrow gauge style with match-boarded sides riding on Hudson type wagon bogies. Like all kits the coach can easily be modified during construction to create a design unique to an alternative model narrow gauge line.
