Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron

Pack H: Londonderry Collieries - Three 4T ‘Black Waggons’, in two body styles, circa 1960s.

Containing three wagons, numbered:

  • 1833
  • 1641
  • 650

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.

Too cute for words

Even after having my chaldrons for a few months I cannot get over how tiny and cute they are. A fantastically quirky addition for any layout. Now, about a suitable locomotive…?

Coal wagons

What charming wagons. Detail at small scale perfect as is the detailing and paint finish.

Fine detail, yet robust and functional

Lots of detail features in these little wagons, but all put together well and fully-functional on the track.

Chaldron Wagons

hese are lovely little wagons and are something that would be found on locations in the Northumberland and Durham Coalfields. Whether in use or on a scrap line they set the scene for a North-east layout.
