model uses the latest in technology to aid you keeping
your track clean and is perfect for those hard to reach
places such as tunnels, at the back of layouts or under
catenary wires. It is DCC ready and features an 8pin DCC
socket that can take either UK or USA configured
decoders (orientated), and needs a chip that can operate
the motor to function on DCC. It can be run on DC as a
normal item with the motor sharing power with the
locomotive that is needed to haul it. There is an
onboard on/off switch to aid this. The motor within the
unit powers, at the modellers choice, either the vacuum
function or the sprung abrasive/polishing head. There is
also an under body brush for basic removal of dirt/fluff
etc, and a reservoir that can be filled with any non
flammable, plastic friendly track cleaning solution that
feeds down onto a sponge (included) that rubs the rail
head (to be used before the sprung buffing head). It is
fitted with the best of darkened profile wheels set to a

highly inflammable products and Class B for carrying
fuel oils, diesel oils and kerosene’s. The Class B type

Dapol Railway 16T Mineral Wagon.
16-ton mineral wagon was used in great numbers by
British Railways in both fitted and unfitted (that is
with vacuum brakes,) forms. These all-steel wagons had
largely replaced the earlier wooden planked wagons for
the transport of coal and other minerals.
Dapol Railway BR Brake Van.
The 20-ton goods brake van
was first introduced in 1951, and is based upon the
earlier L.N.E.R. vehicle. Production was commenced by
the North Eastern Region of British Railways, and many
hundreds were brought into service. The brake van has a
steel under frame and timber body, fitted with seats,
lockers and a stove for the guard, in addition to the
screw brake hand wheel and vacuum brake application
gear. The body features projecting side windows for all
round visibility. Plain
journals running in fabricated steel axle boxes with 3ft
2in-diameter disc wheels. Fitted vacuum brake with one
18in cylinder operating two brake blocks to each wheel,
with an additional screw hand brake operated from inside

Dapol Railway BR Cattle Wagon.
The cattle wagon has figured as an item
of railway rolling stock since the very early days of
railways, and the British Railways standard cattle wagon
featured in this kit is one of the later designs to see
service. A vacuum brake with one 0.46cm cylinder
operates one brake block to each wheel with an
additional handbrake each side for marshalling only. Technical

Dapol Railway 10T Ventilated Meat Van.
ventilated meat van operated by British Railways is a
direct development of the vans used by the former L.M.S.
Railway. The van makes maximum use of standard
components, and its under frame is in fact identical
with that used on the 12-ton ventilated goods van. The
body differs externally only in the additional
ventilators used on the meat van. The maroon colour
scheme shows that the vehicle is used for fresh meat and
the “XP” code denotes that the van is suitable for
running in passenger trains.
Dapol Railway Lomac. The low loading
machinery wagon, usually known by its code name of
Lomac, has much in common with the machinery wagons
operated by the former railway companies prior to
nationalisation. This 14-ton vehicle is one of several
versions of Lomac and is normally used for carrying
vehicles or farm or building machinery, the height of
which necessitates especially low wagons in order to
clear the loading gauge. At each end of the wagon the
buffers are covered by ramp like plates enabling the
load to be driven or pushed into place with the minimum
of effort. Technical Data: Length over
buffers, 28ft 6in, Length over headstocks, 25ft 6in,

The vehicle is equipped with hand lever brakes.
