Parkside Models PS19 LNER / BR Plate Wagon Kit O Gauge
- Temporarily Out of stock
Parkside Models PS19 LNER / BR Plate Wagon O Gauge As the depression of the 1930s lifted the LNER required more medium sized Plate wagons. A new design with a 20 ton capacity and a riveted body emerged in 1937. In 1940 the LNER introduced this all welded version. The LMS also adopted the design for its last batch of Plate wagons. However as they were delivered after Nationalisation, they were strictly BR wagons. These LMS wagons were 1/4 higher and had LMS axle boxes but were otherwise identical. BR used the same design but this time with riveted ends. A few wagons were allocated new to Engineering departments. The capacity was uprated to 22 tons by BR. Withdrawal took place in the 1970s and early 1980s. Transfers for LNER and BR 1950s and 1960s/70s. Parkside O gauge Wagon Kits Contain Wheels, Bearings, Couplings & Transfers As Well As The Kit Itself. (Please note Kits require suitable Glues & Paints to complete).
