Rapido Trains UK are producing two new ‘OO’ gauge South Eastern & Chatham Railway wagons, with the Diagram 1426 van and the Dia. 1744 ballast wagon. These vans were introduced in 1918 and they lasted well into BR days, setting the standard for future Southern Railway vans. They shared the same 9ft 6in wheelbase with the five- and seven-plank open wagons that are also in production.
The Dia 1426 van sports the following features:
• Designed in the UK
• Two types of rain strip: curved and straight
• Separately-fitted end ventilators
• Split-spoked wheels running in metal bearings
• Highly detailed body and under frame
As with the other SECR models, the two-plank ballast wagon have a high specification:
• Designed in the UK
• Two floor versions: curve-ended planks and straight-ended planks
• Split-spoked wheels running in metal bearings

• NEM coupler pockets
