5 inc gauge BR Coil J wagon

British railways had a large quantity of Coil J wagons, These were converted by cutting down the 27 Ton iron ore tippler wagons in 1968, they had a wooden coil cradle fitted to carry strip coil. Initially they were used by British Railways in South Wales, and had a Richard Thomas & Baldwin fleet number. Later they were used over much of the UK network. With the Coil C's they were the last unfitted wagons in regular revenue earning use on BR.


Our model 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 just behind a loco or shunted in a yard, without losing detail.
