Conflat-A container flat wagon

(photo shows 7 1/4" version but 5" version is pretty much identical - only smaller! )

British Railways built over 20,000 'Conflat A' wagons to six different designs or 'diagrams' between 1951 and 1958, all were basically similar and all had a common body length of 17ft 6ins with a wheelbase of 10ft and automatic vacuum brakes. 

The most numerous were those built to diagram 1/069 which numbered almost 12,000; these were built in 13 batches or 'lots' including a single lot of 5,550 wagons built by Pressed Steel
 
 
THE MODEL: 

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 in a rake behind a loco or shunted in a yard, without sacrificing detail.

This is our most detailed model to date, and we believe that the price makes it extremely good value.
