Hattons Model Railways has received the final CAD drawings of its recently announced ‘OO’ gauge model of the War Department ‘Warwell’ bogie well wagons.

The model will cover the 1942 introduced ‘Warwells’ in four stages of their careers: as built condition, LMS modified form as a bogie bolster wagon, LMS modified form as a track panel carrier and 1970s overhauled vehicles with Gloucester bogies and oval buffers.

The price per wagon is £33 (£37 with a weathered finish) with release anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2017. The ‘Warwell’ is also being developed in ‘O’ gauge by Hattons.

The specification includes turned metal wheels, NEM coupling pockets and a number of separately fitted detailing components. Hatton’s has produced the ‘Warwell’ CAD drawings using original Ministry of Supply drawings as well as measurement surveys.
