The Loriot M was built by the GWR between 1925 and 1927 to diagram G14.
They carried running numbers 42197-42201 and ran in service well into BR days. They were designed with a sloping
floor so that a vehicle could be driven onto the wagon from an end loading dock and then sit within the well of the
wagon, chained into place using the securing holes in the wagons side curb rail. This enabled tall road vehicles to
remain within the loading gauge.
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 just behind a loco or shunted in a yard, without losing detail.
Note: The dummy brake gear "add-on" kit, previously offered as an extra, is now incorporated as
standard, due to customer demand.
