High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society have commissioned a 7 plank Private Owner coal wagon from West Wales Wagon Wagon Works in the livery of local coal and coke merchant W. V. Baines & Son Ltd.

Based at 20 Frogmore, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, W. V. Baines & Son Ltd was one of the largest transport company with a branch dedicated to fuel supplies in the area. Their coal office was situated in Prior Road opposite the old fire station (now part of Primart's shop).  The company no longer exists and no photographic records have been found but we know from records of wagon ownership held by Longmoor publishers that Baines had one or more private owner wagons.

The model utilises the latest Dapol 9 foot wheelbase under frame and 7 plank body and is priced at £14.50. it will be available for purchase from either the Societies stand or from West Wales Wagon Wagon Works at the WYCRAIL exhibition on Saturday 2nd November.

This year’s WYCRAIL ’13 exhibition on Saturday November 2nd, will once again, following last years successful move to the bigger, better and brighter venue of The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Bucks HP12 4UD on Saturday November 2nd.
