This is the £8.20 Peco 'Dean Forest Coal Company' N gauge 7 plank wagon, produced exclusively for us here at Derails Models. This item is a limited edition of 100 pieces, and is the first issue in what we hope will become a reasonable range of exclusive local wagons. Please see this page for more info. 

This wagon was manufactured by Peco in the United Kingdom.

The Dean Forest Coal Company was a coal factor company set up in 1870 by an employee of Henry Crawshay & Co., a Forest of Dean Colliery Company. George Frederick Morgan worked as Trade Manager for Crawshay & Co and due to this, the two companies had a close relationship. Dean Forest Coal was still trading in 1935. The 7 plank coal wagon represented here is number 437, which was a wagon from the first batch of ten ordered from Gloucester Carraige & Wagon works in 1914.

The research and development of this wagon was aided considerably by the book "Private Owner Wagons of the Forest of Dean", written by Ian Pope and published by Lightmoor press. The book, although out of publication, can still be obtained using the ISBN number 1 899889 09 4 from a variety of sources, including the Dean Forest Railway. Thankyou.
