LSWR Goods Brake Van - diagram 1541 - Road Van OO Gauge
We have commissioned the LSWR Road Van in OO Gauge as an exclusive model with the tooling owned by Kernow Model Rail Centre.
First introduced in 1886 they were later classed as SR Diagram 1541. Almost 500 of these were built between then and 1905 making them the most numerous LSWR Goods Brake Van. Brake Vans with side doors through which parcels or other goods could be loaded were known as road vans.
The prototype was laser scanned at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway at the same time that we scanned the Adams O2. We have only recently progressed the model and the cads are almost complete with just a few tweaks required. The model joins our growing portfolio of LSWR models and will be ideal for use with our Adams O2 model as we will be producing Mainland and Isle of Wight numbered vehicles.
This model has been awaiting a place in the queue behind the LSWR Gate Stock and other projects. We are now aiming to start tooling this model in Summer / Autumn of 2018.
We are grateful for the assistance of Mike King and Graham Muspratt in the development of this model.
The models will be £34.99 each. You can save £5 per wagon by paying in full at the time of placing your order. If you do not wish to pay at the time of ordering, you will need to wait until the models arrive in the UK before you can place an order (There is the danger they may sell out before this). If you placed an order prior to July 2018 you will be contacted directly about this (once we have completed processing orders for Bulleid diesels!).
