  • Private owner wagons

    Delighted to see regular releases of wagons It would be better to have new liveries rather than just renumberings. There are loads of liveries that have yet to be done that have been in OO and O. The artwork exists for reduction.. There seems to be a number of collectors of such wagons -100?

    Just discovered another N commission for my collection by Llangollen Railway GPV van in cream with Welsh Dragon side. Quite difficult to track commissions.

    There are several private owners which travelled widely and had many wagons. Hudson Volume 5 has article - Cory, Charringtons, Stephenson Clarke, Ricketts, Beattie, Modern Transport.
    CWS is another. I am surprised that Preserved lines do not commission ones that relate to their operation.

      Just discovered the first N commission for 2019. by Hobby Goblin, Stoke. They have doen several in OO previously. This is a 7plank for Stirrup and Pye of Stoke.-black -135 made. Is based on a real wagon as featured in Thomas Sketchbook Vol1. I prefer real liveries.
      The Swansea MRG has confirmed plans for a new commission in N, OO and O and are reviewing art work shortly before opening order book.

        Just been doing some local history of Gt Yarmouth and the railway.
        I found photo in MGN Circle Bulletin of Co-operative Wholesale Society wagon at Yarmouth Beach (closed 1959). These were widely travelled and not done in N and only one version in OO. Turton's books -Vol3.7.5.9 have photos.
        Also found 7 plank Cory wagon on Quay-another large company.which travelled widely. Also had Mineral wagons. Hudson and Turton have photos.

        It may also be worth doing a wagon for Corwen opening and Oswestry.-plenty to choose from at Oswestry!
