Graham Farish [N] 373-925C 30T 'Prawn' Bogie Bolster in BR Gulf Red [WL]
Bogie Bolster Wagons first entered traffic in the early twentieth century. Designed to carry long loads, these flat bed wagons were fitted with bolsters and stanchions which could be arranged in numerous configurations to suit any particular load. This Graham Farish model, like the prototype, can be configured to suit any load you wish, as the bolsters and stanchions are packed separately, simply clipping into position on the deck in whichever position suits your needs. Supplied with a pair of steel girders for the wagon to carry, the model is just as happy running without a load, or with an alternative load of your choice.
Ideal for transporting telegraph poles and signalling equipment, some examples were allocated to the Signal and Telecommunications Department (S&T) as depicted by this Graham Farish model. Gaining the Gulf Red colour scheme of the period, the code name ‘Prawn’ was also applied – in keeping with the aquatic names given to other engineer’s wagons.
