LNER Single Bolster Wagons

  PROTOTYPE. This is the last design of 13 ton single bolster wagon built by the LNER from 1945. The design was continued by British Railways who built 8000 between 1949 and 1957 as a BR standard wagon. They continued in revenue earning service until 1972 and remained in engineers use and in internal user fleets at docks etc into the 1980’s.

  KIT. This is a straightforward wagon that is ideal for a newcomer to build as one of their first projects. As the kit contains components for two separate wagons all operations are going to be repeated at least twice. Providing an instant opportunity to experiment with different construction techniques and compare the results.

  The bolsters are designed to swivel with working shackles so that the careful modeller can fabricate a load of timber, steel sections, pipes etc. Then secure this load to the bolsters using fine chain to provide a distinctive wagon for running on their layout.
