Dapol plans ‘O’ gauge BR 20ton brake van


Dapol has announced that it will be produced a new ‘O’ gauge ready-to-run model of the BR 20ton brake van – and that drawing work is complete and ready for tooling.

The model will represent the diagram 1/504 vacuum through pipe and 1/506 unfitted vans built between 1951-1957. Dapol also plans to produce the last batches of these vehicles which had roller bearing axles in the future. The 20ton brake van will have a plastic body, die-cast chassis, compensation beam, sprung metal buffers, sprung metal coupling, die-cast wheels with steel tyres and pin point brass bearings.

Eight versions are planned for release in the first batch covering BR grey as B951771 (Cat No. 7F-200-001), B952182 (7F-200-002) and B953095 (7F-200-003), BR bauxite as B951224 (7F-200-004), B952042 (7F-200-005) and B952978 (7F-200-006) plus unnumbered vehicles in BR grey (7F-200-007) and BR bauxite (7F-200-008). The price per wagon will be £79.95.
