This is the GR-231U Peco Lynton and Barnstaple 009 narrow gauge 8 ton bogie open wagon in SR Brown livery with no markings It is part of the Peco OO-9 Ready to Run narrow gauge rolling stock range, a growing range based on both prototypes and freelance rolling stock. 

Wagon 22 was an open bogie vehicle of 8 ton capacity, built at the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway’s workshop at Pilton in 1903 to complement the existing fleet, which included a number of similar vehicles built by Bristol Wagon and Carriage Works. The L&BR had no regular freight workings, and goods vehicles were added to passenger trains as required. They were all fitted with vacuum brakes to allow them to be marshalled between the loco and coaches, and negate the need for a separate goods brakevan. Freight moved on the L&BR included coal, ballast, farm machinery, hay and even manure! From new all freight vehicles were painted light grey with black ironwork. Under Southern Railway ownership the wagons were repainted standard SR brown, and number 22 became SR number 28313 (as per this model).

Postage and packaging will start from £3.10. Mixed with other items it may be slightly higher, however if we find at shipping your order costs less than paid to post, we'll refund the difference!

009 is narrow gauge in 1:76 scale. The loco's and rolling stock run on N gauge track to OO scale, therefore giving a 'narrow gauge' impression.
