This is the third resin wagon body we have produced. Following on from our earlier dumb buffered and Charles Roberts ‘D’ ended versions our new wagon is a type that would have been found all over the UK rail network.

Our new wagon body is a ‘Harrison & Camm’ - of Rotherham - 7 plank open wagon, with side, end and bottom doors to 1887 RCH specification. The photographs of the completed wagon show it as No 25 in the livery of ‘Sherwood’ Colliery of Mansfield who had 300 from this builder.

This wagon body is not a limited edition. Unlike our previous wagons there is no limit to the quantity you can order.

Please note: The masters for these models were produced by members of the HMRS who are also 7mm modellers and volunteers at the Museum & Study Centre. One of them has also been restoring full size examples for many years.
