British railways had a large quantity of 13T sand wagons, Most were originaly built with 9’ wheelbase but many later received modification in to 10’ wheelbase to increase stability. The main body side lettering denoted where the wagon should be returned to when empty such as “CONGLETON LMR” or “LEIGHTON BUZZARD LMR”


Our model is of the 9’ wheelbase version. Although reproduced to 1.0625”- 1’ is more of a representation than a like for like scale replica, allowing us to produce a reliable and useable model that still looks just the part. All steel construction and modern engineering techniques allow this model to be used on a garden railway or club track alike whether it is used in a rake behind a loco or shunted in a yard, without sacrificing detail.
