Rapido Trains 917002 GWR Loriot Y Machinery Truck 41990 GWR Goods Grey (Preserved) OO
Designed for the carriage of machinery and other loads too tall to be carried on ordinary flat wagons the Loriot Y features a low central load bed and was often used for carrying tracked vehicles like bulldozers and crawler cranes. Occasionally something really unusual might be carried, like a yacht or navigation bouy.
Wagon 41990 was built in 1939 and is modelled in the GWR standard goods grey livery carried since preservation.
This Rapido Trains model features injection moulded and die-cast construction with separately fitted detail parts, metal bearings for smooth running, NEM coupler pockets and additional tie-down points to reflect key periods in these vehicles’ careers.
