GWR-Shunters-truck-in-7-25-inch-gauge 

 

Great Western built a number of variants of the Shunter's Truck from diagrams M1 to M5, of which we have based our model on the Diagram M4 version. Shunter's Trucks were a kind of flat wagon which had full length footboards and handrails for shunters, who rode on them during movements around stations and depots. They carried a distinctive asymmetrical toolbox and usually had their depot name painted on this.

 

THE MODEL:

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 usable 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.
