Contact us for details of extra parts.The LMS had a lot of Midland Railway influence in many of its earlier rolling stock designs not least its Goods Brake Vans. Our models are of types, which although built in the 1920s lasted through LMS times and indeed were quite common until the 1960s, by which time they had also spread into ex LNER areas. Vans transferred to the Cilvil Engineers fleet were still around in the 1970s.
These vans were built in various batches in the 1930's. During the Second World War further building took place with a batch also being made for the LNER. The first BR gunpowder vans were also constructed to this design in the late 1940's and early 1950's. Most lasted in this form until the late 1950's by which time they had been converted to vacuum brake operation. Transfers included for LMS (post 1936 and wartime), LNER and BR. 2013 RELEASE - AVAILABLE NOW.
These gunpowder vans were built between 1913 and 1926 to carry gunpowder and other explosives. Their design is a breakaway from the more traditional 'Iron Mink' type. Examples lasted until around 1960.
These vans were built in 1921 - 23 to carry fresh or chilled meat. Some vans were converted to TEVANS in the 1930's, when there was less demand for meat vans. TEVANS carried products sensitive to contamination like tea or confectionery. Most vans survived into Nationalisation in 1948 and a few lasted into the early 1960's. 2013 RELEASE - AVAILABLE NOW.
These twelve identical bogie coaches were built for the opening of the railway in 1902. All twelve when built were 7 compartment 3rd class coaches, open above the seat backs, however, as the need arose some were converted to other uses. 2 coaches were converted into open 3rd class coaches by having their sides stripped above the waist and two large windows cut in each end. Our re-released V of R coach kit contains a NEW updated side moulding and also a NEW moulded roof replacing the previous pre-curved plastikard roof. A very versatile coach for 009 modelling which can be easily converted into the later modified semi-open version.
