Ready to Run Wagons

The first batch of Dapol Private Owner wagons have proved incredibly popular and represent superb value for money. Following the success of these Tower Models has commissioned a series of Special Edition wagons to be released with only 100 of each being produced.

Below is a list of the first 12 that have been commisioned which are now available with a further 24 to be announced in the next 6 - 12 months. As and when we receive further information we will update these pages with the latest news.

We have now reeived the full shipment of the Tower Models Exclusive series of Colliers and Train Makers wagons. As an experiment we have had a very small number of these weathered by Dapol to see how popular this will be. There is only 2-3 of each available with the exception of the Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon which have already been sold. Obviously these are on a first come first served basis; subject to their success we may well go on to offer weathering as standard on the future series of wagons to be released in 2014 and 2015.

TOWER MODELS SPECIAL EDITION DAPOL PRIVATE OWNER WAGONS.

In the early days of the railways most freight wagons were open wagons and were used to carry all types of goods. If the load was more delicate it was often protected by taurpaulin sheets. These wagons got progressively larger as locomotives became more powerful and demand for rail freight increased. In 1923 the RCH laid down standards and specifications for open wagons and 5 plank wagons with a capacity of 10 tons became the standard general goods wagon and many thousand of these were built. Both 7 and 8 plank wagons were generally manufactured for transporting coal and coke and produced in vast numbers. All of these wagons were used well into the 1960's

The Dapol O gauge model of the open wagons features:

Extremely well details and accurate body shell and chassis with all internal details represented.
Etched handrails, supports and ladders.
3 link metal coupling chain and sprung coupling hook.
Metal sprung buffers.
Opening side doors.
