Modelbahn Ltd Edition Wagons

Recommended Posts

Some of the Dapol wagons made for Modelbahn are in fictitious liveries, such as the Railfreight van, but some are correct!!

 So....what about the OWV china clay wagon...anyone know if a wagon in this livery existed???

If the dark brown is a representation of unpainted wood and the orangey brown meant to be repainted planks/metalwork, the only thing wrong* is the actual colours! In real life they were covered in a fairly uniform china clay "off-white muck" colour.

OWV-coded 13T opens, including E-prefixed examples, did work china clay traffic. I've a photo on here: http://www.rmweb.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=47474#p721298, showing E-prefixed ones.

 

*Another edit: well, I suspect not the only thing wrong! I can't vouch for the accuracy of the model as a 13T E-prefix open - doubt whether spoked wheels would be common on them by the TOPS code period, and I can't see a vacuum cylinder, and I'm a complete novice on brake gear

Both have four wheels.

 

Compare and contrast with the real thing.

Mark it 'China Clay Only' and stick a coal load in - nice.

I had some N Gauge Versions (they were incorrect 7 Planks) weathered and they look good.

Don’t forget to change the wheels too.. the real one had discs, not spoked.
