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.
Our model, although reproduced to 1.54" :
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.
A well detailed model which we believe provides
extremely good value.
