Ready to Run Wagons

Dapol have been working on a range of BR wagons all base on the 10foot wheelbase chassis which have now been released but with more vehicles to be released over the next 12 months. As and when we get more information I will update this section.

The wagons run nicely, the die-cast chassis providing a rigid, weighty base and we have increased the weight of the coupling hook spring.

The second batch of the opens and vans is now available with alternate running numbers but stocks of these are already running low.


Diagram 1/039 Open Merchandise wagon

BR allocated two diagrams to the LMS design open merchandise wagon, both with and without a tarpaulin bar, with some having the tarpaulin bar removed in later service. Some were vacuum braked, others were initially unfitted, being converted to vacuum brake in the late 1950s. Over 8,000 of Diagram 1/039 and 1/044 wagons, with their characteristic corrugated steel ends, were built throughout the 1950s. Used for a wide range of goods traffic until the 1980s, some had their life extended another decade in the Civil Engineers fleet.

Diagram 1/251 Insulated 12 Ton Van

Standard British Railways van design for carrying chilled meat. Built in 1953-4 to diagram 1/251, these vans were closely related to the contemporary ventilated van design, but with an internal insulating layer instead of vents. This layer also reduced the carrying capacity from 12 to 10 tons. Originally painted white with black underframe, the white was later (after 1964) replaced by ice blue. Some of these vans were later being used for other traffic, such as beer, for which some vans were re-classified as ALE. Most of these vans survived into the 1970s.
