Description

On nationalisation, the newly formed BR inherited a vast collection of rolling stock including wagons and hoppers designed to carry coal. As the national rebuild gained full force after the devastation of World War II, the demand for coal soared and BR decided to produce a standard coal hopper to help improve efficiency.

The variant finally chosen was based on a 1930s LNER design and was of an all steel construction. Over 23,000 of these were built between 1949 and 1958 and continued in service until the early 1980s. Due to the heavy wear and tear these hoppers endured, many were modified and rebuilt.

MODEL

These model hopper wagons are typical of the later modified design of welded 21t hopper.

FEATURES:

  • Profiled wheels
  • Complete with load
  • Highly detailed body, finely moulded
  • NEM pockets with self-centring couplings
