PBA / JIA Clay Tiger Wagon

We have produced the PBA / JIA TIGER China Clay wagon with the tooling and design work entirely owned by Kernow Model Rail Centre.

35 of these wagons were built by Fauvet Girel in 1982.  They were mainly used between Cornwall / Devon and Stoke on Trent, with trips to Scotland at regular intervals.  In the early 1990s the wagons were modified and recoded JIA with additional fittings for train ferry use added.  In later years they were used for short-notice flows, with just four remaining at Burngullow in 2010.  These were cut-up shortly after our site visit and none have been preserved.

"Kernow unleashes a white Tiger .... All in all, a top drawer re-creation of a highly individual wagon type and one that should sell extremely well" - Rail Express

We have produced weathered and pristine models as exclusive models as shown below.  New versions are now also being supplied under the EFE Rail brand.
