Evening I'm receiving a Dapol LMS gunpowder van tomorrow as I plan to add this to a photo plank. 

I need help as I cannot seems to find pictures of where these wagons would have been stored. I'm thinking a siding, quayside or factory area. Any help would be appreciated.

For 'stored' do you mean places where they could turn up on the railway network ?


Explosives producing factories such as Penrhyndeudraeth


Places receiving the explosives ?


There have been previous threads and posts on RMweb regarding such traffic.

Put another way, they weren't stored, they were in traffic, which meant they were either at the gunpowder factories being loaded, in trains on their way to their destinations (quarries, collieries, etc,), at the destinations being unloaded, or returning empty to the gunpowder factories, or in sidings waiting for one of those situations to take place.  They were of course empty for any repairs or overhauls.
