On railway club night it’s good to try and do something different each week. I decided this week to run just kit built wagons. The allocated box to carry these loose would just take 17 so that was the limit.
Some of these had not been run for quite a while and I decided a test session first was the best thing to do. Here we have 16 wagons and a brake van. For anyone really interested in kit-built wagons this is what the Bachmann 57XX was pulling :-
Parkside Dundas Southern Utility van
Cambrian kits 16T Mineral
Parkdide Dundas Vanwide
Dapol Presflo 20T cement wagon
Dapol ventilated meat van
Parkside Dundas Vanwide
Parkside Dundas 16T Mineral
Parkside Dundas Palvan
Dapol 16T Mineral with chalk load
3 x Dapol Lowmac (centre wagon with 2 x Oxford tractors)
3 Dapol Prestwin
1 Dapol 16T Mineral
1 Dapol BR Brakevan
Kit Building is not for everyone, but certainly the Dapol range offers a chance to increase you wagon pool at minimal cost, ane here’s the proof that they can run well.
