Coal fuelled Britain during the twentieth century and much of this fuel was transported by rail. The 16 Ton Steel Mineral Wagon began as a wartime design, but following Nationalisation hundreds of thousands of these humble four wheel wagons would be ordered by BR to move coal around the UK, replacing the wooden-bodied wagons that had been inherited from the ‘Big Four’ railway companies and private owners.
Each of the wagons in this triple pack feature end doors, and side doors which have top flaps – this aided manual unloading in coal yards – and the models features separately fitted door stops, brake gear, linkage and hand brake levers, and is fitted with metal buffers.
