Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron

Pack A: North Eastern Railway - Three P1 style Chaldrons, circa 1890

Containing three wagons, numbered:

  • 6597
  • 2216
  • 4563

Each pack produced has been themed by colliery, and each waggon depicted is based on photographic evidence and reference to colliery records to confirm lettering styles. Some packs contain just one style of waggon, while others contain mixed styles where research has shown that they operated in conjunction with each other. 

Specification List:

  • Die-cast metal chassis with plastic body. Weight of 9g unloaded.
  • Operates over minimum radius curves (371mm, 1st radius set-track)
  • Five different body designs, covering a time period from 1840 to 1978.
  • Three styles of wheel design; split spoke, star spoke and wave spoke, to a blackened 00 gauge RP25-88 profile.
  • Three styles of braking arrangement and brake handles, with different block types and the more complicated Londonderry clasp type brake.
  • Three arrangements of ‘bang-boards’.
  • Additional, removable ‘greedy boards’ (horizontal board extensions to the body) to the Shildon Works built Chaldron, giving an increased coal loading.
  • Scale width wire handrails, metal pin jaw coupling and wire/etch handbrake levers.
  • Eroded metal/plastic detail parts, including grab handles, door securing pins, chassis chain points and safety chains in metal.
  • Wagons connected via an all new link fine chain with Neodymium magnetic heads, connected at the wagon via prototypical cotter pin coupling.
  • Two extra NEM fitted magnetic couplings supplied with wagon packs to allow for fitting to locomotives and/or additional rolling stock.
  • Artwork features authentic colliery markings and numbers, accurate to time period modelled and based on actual photographic evidence where possible.
  • Additional research assistance provided by Beamish Living Museum, Bowes Railway and the North Eastern Railway Association.

Good Things in Small Packages

For somthing so small these are great, sturdy little wagons. They work very well on my uneven track. And the magnetic chain are an innovation in themselves. The wagons run well both being pulled and pushed. I've had no derailments doing either.

Littlest wagon on the prairie packs.

Not a lot to say but these 4-ton four-wheeled plank wagons. They are small coal rolling stock, which served the early industrialisation of the UK. Wonderfully captured in miniature with variation across the stock. Differences include wheel spokes, brake shoes and planking to suit each company that had them. Coupling up is done via tiny magnetic blocks linked with exceptionally fine chain loops. At their usual standard of producing excellent detailing etc, these wagons are a real treat to see. Accurascale is issuing many versions from Londonderry and Vale, NCB, and the Stella Coal Company. They are little gems for siding or layouts of bygone days.

Just when you think you have seen it all.

Pleasant surprise to see these little wagons and that they are popular and selling well,remember them as Durham was littered with pits or collierys if it suits more,and being only a few miles from Beamish.
Another all good item from the modellers model maker.
