Diesel Brake Tenders were introduced by British Railways for use when the brakes on diesel locomotives were inadequate to control an unfitted train. Filled with scrap steel to raise the weight of the vehicle to 35½–37½ tons, this consequently increased the available brake force. They were introduced in the early 1960s using bogies recovered from coaches.

Our model comes ready to run, with removable fully upholstered correctly profiled, roof / seat, with ample stowage space below, fitted with cable operated twin disc braking, and removable running boards.

  • Sprung suspension
  • Sprung CNC turned Buffers
  • Clevis Couplings
  • Machined steel axle boxes wth ball race bearings
  • Finished in BR Green livery as standard

TERMS OF ORDERING: You can order these models online if you wish, BUT please understand the following:

DEPOSIT: The amount show above for checkout will be the Deposit only, at 25% of the full cost. The deposit for these "built to order" models is non-refundable. The balance, plus any necessary shipping costs, will be required shortly before completion. We normally request this balance when the model reached the painting stage.

DELIVERY LEAD TIMES: Due to the nature of the building of these models, which are all built from scratch, lead times can vary from around 6 - 8 weeks to several months, dependent  on our workload at time of ordering. We do not give guaranteed delivery dates - if delivery time is critical to you we strongly advise you to talk to us about this before placing an order.
