Early Railways Eras 1 & 2

From Rocket to 1920. Locomotives, trains, carriages and wagons from the Victorian and Edwardian period, eras 1 & 2.
The GWR iron bodied 'Iron Mink' vans made an excellent base for duties where a strong and secure wagon was required. Many vans of similar design were built by other railways and for private owners by railway wagon works. Regular uses were for flour and cement, which needed to be kept dry during transport and for the secure conveyance of explosives, classified as Gunpowder Vans. Gunpowder vans in particular were frequently given a distinct livery to alert railway staff to the hazardous cargo.
This Rapido Trains Iron Mink model is finished in the grey livery of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway, wagon number 30897.

In 1913 the first of these new design vans was built as a trial vehicle using the new SECR standard steel underframe designed by C&W engineer Lionel Lynes and debuting the distinctive tri-arc roof body which was to become a feature of Southern Railway covered wagons.
The Maunsell/Lynes underframe was used for the entire planned range of SECR standard wagons, being common with the 5 and 7 plank open wagons, timber bolster trucks and the new design of engineers ballast wagons. This robust steel frame game all these wagons long working lives, with most reaching British Railways service and some lasting into the 1970s in engineering service.

These distinctive vans were heavily influenced by Midland Railway practice, as adapted to the more flexible dual-veranda design introduced in 1910. The SECR built 50 new vans to this design and 25 older single-veranda vans were rebuilt, with detail differences between the original and new ends. Both types have been tooled. Examples survived into British Railways ownership, with at least 1 survivor on the Kent & East Sussex Railway.

Pack of three Pontopn & Jarrow Railway NER P1 and Stockton Darlington Railway style chaldron wagons, circa 1910. Wagons numbered 405, 460 and 92.
The Pontop & Jarrow Railway linked the Springwell and Mount Moor collieries with ship loading staithes at Jarrow from 1826. Later the line extended to serve Kibblesworth, Marley Hill and Dipton collieries. The company was renamed the Bowes Railway in 1932 and part of the system is preserved.

Chaldron wagons were among the first types of railway wagons used in Britain, a very basic wagon designed for conveying coal and mostly owned by the colliery owners. Although replaced in regular railway service around the end of the 19th century chaldron wagons were still used around collieries and coal loading docks into the 1950s.

This four wheeled coach is a representation of the many which served on the Great Northern Railway (GNR) in the late 19th and early 20th century. Four wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.

This GNR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and gas lighting.

The Maglight system is a new development by Hornby that provides lighting in coaches with minimum fuss and no excessive drag because power is provided on board the coach and not by a tension pick up on the axle. The Maglight system consists of an LCD strip, small button battery and a reed switch. Once installed the lights are switched on and off by just passing a ‘magnet wand’ over the coach roof. The small easily replaced button battery provides in excess of 200 hours of power making the Maglight system a simple but effective way of lighting coaches with the minimum of fuss. The new system is already fitted to many of the new six and four wheel coaches but for those who wish to retro fit the Maglight the installation is both simple and very effective. Maglight also allow the modeller to be selective as to which coach lights are on or off and without the need to install expensive decoders.

The first wagons were built in 1919 the construction of 120 wagons was completed by the Southern Railway, replacing the eclectic mix of run-down wagons in use by the engineers with the new purpose-designed wagon. Most at least of the fleet passed into British Railways ownership, withdrawals starting as new BR wagons were built, though the last wagon lasted until 1971.

Pack of three Earl of Durham's Lambton Collieries NER P1 style chaldron wagons, pre 1896. Wagons numbered 1833, 1641 and 650.
A John Lambton commenced commercial coal production around the village of Bournmoor, County Durham from 1783, seven pits making up the Lambton Colliery. The company was formed by John Lambton, grandson of the original John and first Earl of Durham. The railway ran from the pits to the company staithes along the river Wear. In 1865 agreements with the NER also allowed the colliery company trains to run over the NER line to Sunderland.

Chaldron wagons were among the first types of railway wagons used in Britain, a very basic wagon designed for conveying coal and mostly owned by the colliery owners. Although replaced in regular railway service around the end of the 19th century chaldron wagons were still used around collieries and coal loading docks into the 1950s.

The Diagram 1410 van was the most numerous ventilated van built by the London & South Western Railway (LSWR). Construction began in 1885 and more than 1,000 were built, with various detail differences introduced over the lifetime of the vans. These characterful vehicles feature outside framing, sliding doors and were built with a reduced height when compared with vans built later on. This particular model depicts one such Diagram 1410 van in original LSWR livery which is fitted with Morton Clutch brakes, Panter axle boxes and plain tapered buffers. From 1912 the LSWR built further vans to the new Diagram 1406 which were some 7 inches taller than the Diagram 1410, followed soon after by Diagram 1408 vans which featured hinged doors rather than sliding – this allowed the van body to be slightly wider, increasing the payload. Both of these further types also feature in the EFE Rail range.

These characterful vehicles feature outside framing, sliding doors and were built with a reduced height when compared with vans built later on. In addition to its own fleet, the LSWR also constructed ten vans for the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway (S&DJR). Curiously, the same Diagram number was assigned to this build despite the obvious difference – the lack of vents on the ends. Finished in S&DJR Grey livery, this model is fitted with a single sided brake, Panter axle boxes and plain tapered buffers.

This four wheeled coach is a representation of the many which served on the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) in the late 19th and early 20th century. Four wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.

This LSWR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and oil lamp lighting.

Coaches such as these were vital to the trains of the GWR, more compact than their 4 wheeled cousins and almost tender size. Brake Baggage Coaches combined the installation of a brake with the ability to move luggage as well, giving a variety of uses and versatility to the GWR trains.

As travel time by railway was superior to that of road travel by coach, coach companies sought new ways to compete and the gentry often wished to take their own private coach with them. These low sided flat wagons were ideal for use as 'carriage trucks' conveying road-going vehicles and equipped with passenger train type buffers could be attached to regular trains. First class of course!

Detailed model of the GWR diagram O18 open merchandise wagons introduced in 1902 with higher 5 plank sides than used previously, cross-cornered DCIII spring applied hand brakes, self-contained buffers and 'sack truck' door. When new many were equipped with sheet supporting rails to keep tarpaulin covers from sagging, but these were removed from wagons as they were put into the 'common user' wagon pool. These wagons set the basic open wagon design used by the GWR until nationalisation and many survived as internal users into the 1970s, resulting in several examples being preserved.

The London & South Western Railway (LSWR) built 34 ‘Cross Country’ coach sets between 1906 and 1910. Entering service in fixed formations of four coaches, they were later reduced to three-coach sets, examples of which have already been modelled as part of the EFE Rail range. Now, we are delighted to present these original four-coach sets, having produced new tooling for the missing vehicle to bring these authentic coach sets to life in OO scale. The missing vehicle, a Diagram 17 eight compartment coach, first entered service as a Second/Third Class Composite but was later rebranded as an all Third.

Each four-coach pack comprises two Brake Thirds, a First/Third Composite and a Second/Third Composite. Presented as a book set, the four vehicles are numbered accordingly to create an accurate coach set, with set numbers applied to the brake end of each Brake Third vehicle. With an abundance of detail, including separately fitted roof ventilators, handrails, grab handles and underframe components, this coach pack will make a fine addition to any collection.

Royal trains have always been a consideration of railway operators, and this included in the early days of the railways. One of the first royal coaches dates back to 1842, and still exists to this day. In 1840, the widow of King William IV became the first member of the British Royal Family to travel by train, and with the decision that this may become a regular occurrence, a special coach was built for her travel two years later.

Queen Adelaide, the aunt of Queen Victoria, would receive this coach in the same year that Queen Victoria would take her first journey by rail, becoming the first British monarch to do so. Queen Adelaide's Saloon, coach number 2, was constructed at Euston works who built the underframe and then combined it with a body built by a coach builder, also based in London. The coach built nature of this saloon led to it resembling a horse drawn carriage of the time. The coach was built by the London and Birmingham Railway.

This four-wheeled coach is a representation of the many coaches which served on the Isle of Wight Central Railway in the 19th and 20th centuries. Four-wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.

This first-class coach is modelled with step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and gas lighting. This model is compatible with our new Maglight system which allows coach lights to be turned on and off using a magnetic wand, removing the need for track pick-ups which increase rolling resistance. This elegant coach features a teak-wood panelling livery, reminiscent of luxury travel, and four doors on each side.

As travel time by railway was superior to that of road travel by coach, coach companies sought new ways to compete, leading to mail coaches and stagecoaches being loaded onto the 'open carriage waggons' for onward travel to places such as Liverpool or Manchester. These connecting, or 'branch coaches' were to become the antecedent for the Branch Line railways of the future.

This flatbed wagon comes complete in a vibrant L&MR green livery. The accessory bag contains two chain couplings.
