Dapol GWR Gunpowder Wagon. Gunpowder vans were especially constructed vans designed for the safer transport of gunpowder and other potentially explosive substances. In the 1920s the RCH laid down rules and standards governing the running and construction of these vans and these rules were enforced relatively unchanged until the early 1980s when gunpowder vans were decommissioned. The vans were often painted in distinguishing colours or with crosses to identify the wagons and the potential dangers.
The Dapol model the gunpowder van features: Highly detailed body moulding, Profiled wheels, NEM pockets with self centring couplings, Accurately applied livery.
Cattle wagons were made in large numbers and were a common sight on rail in all parts of the country until their use was eclipsed by the use of specialised road vehicles. After their obsolescence, the ones that were in a fit enough state were often converted into ale vans for the conveyance of beer. The Dapol model of the cattle van is based on the GWR design, of which over 1300 were built and features: Highly detailed body moulding, Profiled wheels, NEM pockets with self centring couplings, Accurately applied livery.

Dapol 4 Plank Wagon GWR 45506 with timber load. The 4 Plank Wagon was built by the GWR in the early 1900s.to determine which design would make the best general purpose open wagon. 200 wagons were built, however the design was not considered a success and was superseded by the later built 5 plank wagon which proved more versatile.
Wagon Features: Highly detailed body moulding, Complete with load, Profiled wheels, NEM pockets with self centring couplings, Accurately applied livery
The 7 plank wagon was the standard coal wagon up to the 1930s when steel mineral wagons were developed. Dapol Model two variations of 7 plank wagon, the internally braced variant with a 9 foot chassis with no end doors and a 10 ton capacity and the RCH standard with a 10 foot chassis and 12 ton capacity. Both Models Feature: Highly detailed body moulding, Complete with load, Profiled wheels, NEM pockets with self centring couplings, Accurately applied livery.
5 way refers to, liquid application, sprung polishing, abrasive scraping, brushing and vacuuming.
This 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 14.4mm back to back and to RP25.110 standards, and is fitted with standard UK type couplings within an NEM coupling box.

The Class B type barrel is fitted with steam coils to assist the off-loading of heavy fuel oils. Discharge of the load is controlled by internal rod and plug, operated by the hand wheel located at the top of the tank barrel.
Dapol Railway 16T Mineral Wagon. The standard 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 the body. Technical Data: Length over buffers 27ft, Inside body length 10ft, Overall height, including chimney 12ft, 2in, Wheel base 16ft.
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 Data: Length over buffers, 6.68m, Inside body length, 3.48m, Wheel-base, 3.35m.
Dapol Railway 10T Ventilated Meat Van.The 10-ton 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, Overall height, 3ft 8 ½ in, Wheelbase, 20ft, Tare weight, 10 tons 6cwt The vehicle is equipped with hand lever brakes.
