DescriptionPeco OO9 GR-231 8 Ton Bogie Open Wagon, Ex L&B Souther Railway No 28313
Wagon 22 was an open bogie vehicle of 8 ton capacity, built at the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway's workshop at Pilton in 1903 to complement the existing fleet, which included a number of similar vehicles built by Bristol Wagon and Carriage Works. The L&BR had no regular freight workings, and goods vehicles were added to passenger trains as required. They were all fitted with vacuum brakes to allow them to be marshalled between the loco and coaches, and negate the need for a separate goods brake van. Freight moved on the L&BR included coal, ballast, farm machinery, hay and even manure! From new all freight vehicles were painted light grey with black ironwork. Under Southern Railway ownership the wagons were repainted standard SR brown, and number 22 became SR number 28313.
The model faithfully represents this particular vehicle, with careful attention being paid to details in the livery, plus separately-fitted brake levers and vacuum brake pipes. The wagon is free running and complete with couplings, which plug into the integral NEM pocket. Presented in a clear plastic box they display well and will appeal to modellers and collectors alike.
