Something for my Dad, as he’s building a layout based in Whitehaven, which is just down the coast. According to the manufacturer of the model ” These wagons were used at the Workington works on the Cumbrian Coast. They were used to transport scrap around the works. These wagons were built using “second hand” under-frames from Caledonian bogie ore wagons. They were typical of many large scrap wagons to be found in works, and compliment the smaller open hearth scrap bogies which we also offer.”
Also according to the manufacturer, the model will be available in Spring of 2002. The site was last updated in January 2002, hinting that perhaps they don’t trade any more. If you’re interested in the model you’d do well to try and contact them and confirm they still exist before sending any money.
