BR 16 ton Mineral Wagon (with opening end door) 

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!
