This 7mm model of a Southern Railway Weedkilling Train came up for sale at the Swansea Railway Modellers Group meeting this evening....


We were keen that a model of this standard went to someone within the club who would appreciate the craftsmanship...and so it did...


Not much is known of the provenance of the model which was bought at an exhibition by one of our members several years ago.


The detail is phenomenal.


The workmen's carriages appear to be modified Slater's


We would very much appreciate any information on the prototype, or indeed the builder...

British Railway Journal No 11 Spring 1986 has an article on two different SR weed killing trains.

The vehicles in the second version, built in 1937, match those of the model. the picture of the complete train has 6 tank wagons and a standard Southern brake van.
