Product Description

This set of 4 x 21t Hoppers is a companion wagon set to our GM2000105 BR Industrial Freight Starter Set, enabling modellers to extend the 2 wagons provided to a longer rake of 6 at a great value price. It's an ideal gift to buy alongside the set as well as being an ideal basis for a weathering project.

The 21t steel bodied hopper was based on a LNER design and was used from 1949 to the early 1980s as the standard BR coal hopper. Over 23,000 were built between 1949 and 1959 and due to their long service and rough work were constantly being rebuilt and remodelled. Variations between wagons are therefore very common with some wagons having fewer ribs, different types of brakes and an overall simpler body design with welded rather than riveted seams as used in earlier examples. The 21T hopper was designated HTV under the TOPS nomenclature system.
