Require glue, paint, transfers, couplings, wheels (Gibson 12mm & brass bearings) to complete.

This is the third type with cast "AAR" bogies built in 1947. The slope of the hoppers had become steeper, apparently because the stone being quarried at Meldon did not "flow" as well as that being used when the 1928 hoppers were built. The BR Walrus (Kit C65) which followed was very similar, although these had GWR-style plate bogies which were somewhat less reliable.

Alan Gibson Wheels compatible : 12mm 3-hole
