NOTE: Pre-production livery sample shown, we have specified a change to the tone of the orange colour, making it both darker and less vibrant. Sunglasses will not be required!

Introduced in 1950, almost 14,000 of these mineral wagons were built for British Rail. Two basic designs were used, both having twin side doors and one end door in their 21ft 6in long bodies, mounted on 12ft wheelbase under-frames. The 21 ton wagons were closer to their 16 ton predecessors in height, and lasted longest both in production and in service. Many saw extended lives in industrial service.

Our dark grey and orange livery is inspired by the internal user wagons at Grimethorpe Colliery in North Yorkshire, however they could be adopted for use on your own industrial layout. The pack will contain three individually numbered wagons.

Just look at that lovely under frame detail...

 

It is possible to customise them with our transfer packs (such as PIC-001or PIC-005) to add additional markings. We will also offer a new transfer set, to be included free with any purchase of multiple packs, enabling up to 9 wagons to be renumbered in the same numbering style. They will suit weathering, yet still brighten up your industrial layout!

I’ve already weathered our sample, I don’t expect many to remain pristine!

  • James Hilton changed the title to Planet Industrials - 21t Internal User Wagon Triple Pack...

RMWebbers may be interested in photos of 66 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/grimethorpecoalite/e6bbc36d5  and 63  https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/grimethorpecoalite/e620ebc11   I have several others in the same collection - 115, 142, 161.

 

Personally I think the colour is much closer to a red with a touch of brown in it - BR Gulf red may be closer????  There are several photos of hopper wagons in the collection which show the colour more clearly.

This is the link to Paul Bartletts photo of number 66 but the revised colour is still too orange!

Thanks both...

 

This is a fact that Steve and went round and round with during development. The base model, the Accurascale MDO, is incorrect for any of those 21t Paul photographed at Grimethorpe, so rather than put the right livery on the wrong wagon we've said our livery is 'inspired' by Grimethorpe, and chosen to go for dark grey and orange.

 

I hope that goes someway to explain the sort of thinking, and consideration that goes into our models. It can be a minefield!
