SR 12ton 8 plank Open Wagon
Warning: Last items in stock!
A numerous type, our kit is for the 9' wheelbase unfitted design (D1379), with "Freighter" double-sided brakes. These were also used as engineers wagons – many were converted to carry cable drums for electrification work between 1950-70.
However, after an accident in which an unfastened top door struck a passenger train, their use for spoil was banned.
NOTE: the kit represents an Ashford-built wagon. This works (unlike Eastleigh) did not bevel the top edge of the body sheeting (planks). When built and painted, the body sides were fairly smooth, with little evidence of plank edges until shrinkage took place.
