Dapol 4F-052-007 OO Gauge F H Silvey, Fishponds Bristol 5-plank Open Wagon
Dapol are releasing a new version of the F H Silvey liveried wagon featuring their new 5-plank body and 9-feet wheelbase wood style chassis. This model will carry a different running number to previous releases, representing another wagon in the large fleet of this Bristol coal supplier.
Based in the Fishponds area of Bristol, home to many engineering firms including locomotive builders' Pecketts, F H Silvey operated an extensive fleet of wagons. Coal was obtained to supply both the boilers and forges of heavy industry and the homes of the workers. The wagon fleet was kept busy year-round, fetching coal from Yorkshire and Kent as well as local sources in Somerset and Gloucestershire.
