LNER  50 Ton Brake Fitted
Bogie Brick Wagon

  PROTOTYPE. 25 of these distinctive wagons were built for the Great Northern Railway by the Leeds Forge Co in 1920. Initially to carry the products of the Peterborough area brick makers. Being fully fitted allowed these wagons to operate at passenger train speeds and could hold 20,000 bricks - effectively replacing 5 ordinary wagons.

  A further 25 wagons were built by the LNER in 1930. They were extremely useful, particularly on fast unfitted goods trains to provide additional braking power when coupled behind the engine. They were long lived vehicles. Examples reached all corners of British Railways.

  Kit. A sophisticated kit for this large wagon designed to capture the essence of the prototype. Although there is a lot of etched parts to this wagon, a computer drawing package was used to create them, so everything fits as intended. You should find all assembly pleasantly satisfying and a good kit for those who enjoy etched brass.
