Metropolitan Railway Milk Van - a 2mm model from Tiny Underground Models

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Hot on the heels of the Dreadnoughts, I'm pleased to present an N gauge model of the Metropolitan Railway milk van, as seen behind Met 1 on the various steam tours on LU metals since 2013.

I've drawn up the 3 variants that I'm aware of, and all will be available from Shapeways by early August once I'm sure the model works.

The first picture shows the body for vans nos 1 to 3 as built. The second shows nos 4 to 6, while the third is number 3 as preserved today.

An interesting element for the final model is the apparent hybridisation of number 3, having the ends of the early examples but the sides and loading doors of the later 3 vans.

The plan is to use a Peco brake van chassis but if this doesn't work I may attempt a unique chassis in due course.
