📢 New GWR Open Wagons & Vans from Rapido!

Posted by Jack Morgan on

A whole host of new GWR wagons have now arrived in stock from Rapido Trains UK! Both of these ranges are new toolings - covering Diag O11/ O15 open wagons, Diag V14/ V16/ X6 Vent Vans and Diag Y4 Banana Vans.

 

GWR DIAG O11/ O15 OPEN WAGONS

 

A step change in GWR open wagon design occurred in 1902 when a fifth plank was added to its four-plank design. The five plank became the GWR’s standard wagon design and, essentially, variations on the post-1904 version with a 3ft 3in deep and 8ft body continued to be built well into the 1940s. The GWR built 10,815 Dia. O11s between 1911-1919 and 2,105 Dia. O15s up to 1922.

    GWR DIAG V14/ V16/ X6 'MINK A' VANS & DIAG Y4 BANANA VANS

     

    The GWR used the telegraphic code ‘Mink’ for the majority of its general purpose vans. The code is most closely associated with the distinctive metal-bodied ‘Iron Minks’ and so it’s often forgotten that the GWR built thousands of wooden-bodied ‘Minks’ from 1892 until the 1940s.
