Built in the 1950s these 35t GLW (Gross Laden Weight) wagons served the railways for many years transporting iron ore from British iron ore mines for steel production. As that traffic ended so the wagons found plenty of other uses, especially with the BR Civil Engineers department, and many lasted into the 1980s as a result. This bauxite liveried example represents the wagon in its original brake-fitted condition, as opposed to the unbraked grey livery version, although to be fair it would never have been so clean so an ideal weathering project for the modeller.
1:148 Scale 16t Mineral Wagon decorated in BR (Bauxite) livery. This model features lots of expertly applied details as based on the prototype, a high level of body detail and excellent running characteristics.
