Ready to Run Wagons

GWR / BR Conflats and Containers

Containers and the special wooden decked conflat wagons used to convey them were produced in great numbers by all four of the railway companies. They allowed door to door deliveries via road, rail and road again without the requirement for the good to be handled at each leg. In the main they were used for furniture removal, although some were built with insulation for refrigerated use. Post nationalisation BR built over 10,000 containers which continued into service until the arrival of the modern standard ISO containers in the 1960s.

These are being produced by Dapol here in the UK and should be out in approximately four months time if everything goes to plan. I will update the website as and when we have more information on the release date and when we have more images.

We are also doing four Limited Edition sets of the BR conflats, two sets of three with the Crimson BD containers with the wording "British Railways" and two sets of three with the "Door to Door" containers, all featuring different numbers. These should become available at the same time as the standard range of models

We are taking advance orders for these now for despatch as soon as they become available.

The specifications for the conflat wagon are:

  • Diecast Chassis
  • Compensation beam for smooth running
  • Injection moulded body and detail parts
  • Sprung metal buffers
  • Sprung couplings
  • Diecast three hole disc wheels with blackened steel tyres.
  • Wheels suitable for fine standard track
  • Expertly applied livery
  • Vacuum Fitted Morton brake gearn- both Vacuum & non-fitted

There will also be three different containers available, the GWR BK2 containers as shown with the CAD image shown here, the GWR BD2 containers and then the BD container.

The Conflat wagon will be available both with and without the container load.
