The British Railways 16t Mineral Wagon building programme lasted from 1944 to
1959. The majority of BR 16t mineral wagons had metal bodies with end doors plus side doors
- some with an upper side door also. These bodies were mounted on 9ft wheelbase chassis and
were non-vacuum fitted with standard Morton brake gear. These wagons remained in regular
working use until the late 1980s.
Our model, although reproduced to 1.54”- 1’ is more of a representation than a like
for like scale replica, thus allowing us to produce a reliable and useable model that still looks just the part.
The sturdy, all steel chassis and body construction allows 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. The end
door does actually open!
