Ready to Run Wagons

British Railways Standard 20 Ton Brake Van

Dapol have announced the manufacture of the British Railways standard 20 ton goods brake van. No layout would be complete without a couple of these vehicles and will be the fitting end to some of our new standard B.R. wagons and vans.
Initially be producing is the main series of brake vans encompassing Diagrams 1/504 (vacuum through piped) and 1/506 (Unfitted) manufactured between 1951 and 1957 totalling some 2,300 vehicles,

However Dapol also plan to produce the last batches of Diagrams 1/506 and 1/507 totalling 1,830 units, these having roller bearing axle boxes in place of the oil type and Oleo self contained buffers at a later date. I will update this page of the website as and when we get more information.

The brake van will feature:

  • ABS body
  • Die cast chassis for added weight.
  • A compensation beam to improve running qualities (standard to all later Dapol designed wagons)
  • Sprung metal buffers
  • Sprung metal couplings either instanter link or screw type where applicable
  • Die-cast wheels with steel tyres
  • Pin-point brass bearings
  • We are also considering including the option of interior lighting and sound.
  • Now in stock and selling fast. dapol have confirmed they are now sold out of three versions but we currently still have stock of all versions.

    The workshop have now had time to do the first example of these with light weathering, more images as and when we complete more. The costs of the weathered examples completed through our workshop is an additional £25.00 each if required with your choice of the degree of weathering.
