N Scale

Post nationalisation, most bulk grain transportation used to be performed by rail and British Railways based its new standardised grain hopper on the LMS steel bodied grain hopper design with a 10’6″ wheelbase and 21′ body. These wagons most often ran in small rakes of between 2 and 10 wagons as a part of a general mixed goods train. The bulk grain used to be discharged from the wagon by way of a bottom discharge chute and then by way of an auger to the waiting road transport. The bulk transportation of grain grew throughout the 1960s and 70s as Britain exported grain in another country. Then again this net export had diminished by the early 1990s and the bulk movement of grain by rail became uneconomic. Today the proportion of grain transported in bulk is a very small proportion and mockingly most grain is now transported in sacks as it used to be before the advent of rail freight products and services. The Dapol model features: Finely moulded body with Correctly moulded ladders and walk ways Correctly applied livery and decoration Profiled wheels
