Ready to Run Wagons


Tower Models Limited

Edition ICI Wagons

Tower Models have commissioned Dapol to produce a Limited Edition set of ICI wagons based on the new Dapol Salt Van and the new Dapol 9 foot wheelbase open wagons which are now available and have been selling well. All of the 1950's red series of wagons is now available with the later 1960's series available before Christmas. The 16 ton minerals in Soda Ash livery should become available in June 2020

The first set covers ICI for the 1940's and 50's in red. These are now available and have been incredibly popular, so much so and due to a number of requests we are adding a few more options on to this livery which are now all in stock

The second set covering the 1960's should hopefully around October 2020 and the ICI Buxton 5 plank wagons have now been finalised and we have received the colour layout images and these cover the 1950's with the Lime Division wording and then the 1960's with the Alkali Division wording with a total of 5 number options of each being produced, as always in limited numbers.

I have now finalised the running numbers for all of the 1960's vehicles including the Blue Salt Vans and should have the colour layout images for these shortly.

We are taking advance orders now for the wagons not yet available for despatch as soon as they become available.

As always if required we will also be offering our custom weathering service at £25.00 per vehicle with the customer choice of the degree of weathering.

Artwork of the new alternate number for the ICI Fleetwood Salt Van which should come into stock in September.

The specifications for the Salt Van are:

  • Diecast Chassis
  • Compensation beam for smooth running
  • Injection moulded body and detail parts
  • Sprung metal buffers
  • Sprung couplings
  • Diecast open spoke wheels with blackened steel tyres.
  • Wheels suitable for fine standard track
  • Expertly applied livery
  • 9 plank body

The specifications for the 5 plank wagon are:

  • Diecast Chassis
  • Compensation beam for smooth running
  • Injection moulded body and detail parts
  • Sprung metal buffers
  • Sprung couplings
  • Externally braced
  • Diecast open spoke wheels with blackened steel tyres.
  • Wheels suitable for fine standard track
  • Expertly applied livery
  • RCH 1887 Specification
  • 5 plank body
  • Axle boxes and brake shoes embossed with the word "Gloucester"
  • Brake gear on one side

These are all now in stock and selling fast with a total of 11 in the ICI red livery now. Dapol themselves have now also announced one of the Lime Vans in ICI livery for Buxton which would nicely compliment our range of these.

Hopefully by next week I should have some images of the new additions to this range with custom weathering.
