Dapol ex-Lionheart Ready to Run Wagons

Lionheart produced superb quality ready-to-run wagons, fully finished and complete with metal wheels, sprung couplings and sprung buffers. These are now going to be released as part of the standard Dapol range of open wagons. They are due for release early 2018. Images shown here are of previously produced models and are as a guide only until such time that we get images out of Dapol.

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

DAPOL ex-LIONHEART COKE WAGONS

In 1907 the Railway Clearing House (RCH) prepared a set of regulations for the construction of 8,10 & 12 ton wagons, however after about 1910 the 12 ton wagons became more popular and by 1923 a new RCH specification was released which included oil axle boxes, brake shoe that could be fitted universally and coil sprung buffers to name a few.

The 1923 RCH standard was used not only for private owner wagon construction, but also by the L.M.S. and L.N.E.R. In fact the L.M.S. constructed more that 30,000 wagons to the standard 7-plank design many wagons lasting well into the 1960's.

The Lionheart model represents the RCH 1923 7 and 8-plank body design some with coke rails having side and end doors or side doors only, depending on the decoration requirements. The door on one side is a separate part and can be repositioned in the open position to simulate being unloaded in the yard.

All our models are built to a ratio of 1:43.5, 7mm scale and fitted with finescale wheels for '0' gauge track. ScaleSeven wheels are also available.

The body is made of ABS plastic incorporating fine detailing and fully finished in 1930's, 1940's and 1950's decorations; the last two digits of the product number indicate the period.

The chassis contains a die-cast metal floor to add weight, a compensating beam on one side to improve running performance, brass bearings, die-cast wheels with steel tyres, sprung metal buffers, sprung die-cast hook and metal coupling links.

Solebars, axleboxes and brake gear components are moulded in ABS plastic for strength.
