London Transport wagons...

Postby AndrewG » Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:14 pm

I'm starting a small London Transport-based layout. Does anyone know if the bogie wagons pictured in my link are available in any form-kit or RTR?

Try contacting Radley Models. They should do them, if not they can tell you who does.

Bachmann did produce these and they are readily available on eBay.

This one has been repainted and body mounted Kadee's fitted. They original came in red and had truck mounted "horn hook" couplings.

Thanks for all your replies. I just had a nice surprise; I want to be able to run prototypical engineering/spoil trains which, on LT, utilised a brake at both ends of the train. I saw Antics were offering a 'split from set' brake which I ordered thinking I'd get the same running number as that on my Midnight Metropolitan set, necessitating re-numbering. Not at all! The one from my set is numbered B581 and the one which has arrived from Antics, B584. Bonus!
Now to hunt down some of those bogie wagons...

I have one of the old Triang ones that Tornado mentioned, excellent condition, just needs buffers.

Would the Parkside Dundas LNER bogie brick wagon kit, ref PC23, be close to the type you're looking for?

I'd say it was !! I looked at that also , I'd probably go for them being London brick wagons and the NE seems to be the self same wagon

The wagons in the Geoff Plumb photo are not the LNER brick wagon. They're much lower - the bogies have small wheels as they will be purpose-built for p/way work. If the OP is prepared to kitbuild (or adapt a kit), the Cambrian kit of the BR Sturgeon is generically similar:

(scroll down to kit C82).

I'd thought about doing one of those Sturgeons myself but with a house move coming up, I'm in no position to attempt it for some time
