Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron

Pack I: Seaham Dock Co. - Three 4T ‘Black Waggons’, in three body styles, circa 1950s.

Containing three wagons, numbered:

  • 37
  • 27
  • 28

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.

Seaham Harbour Chaldron Pack

Excellent! Impressively small, would thoroughly recommend.

Chaldon pack

Nicely detailed small wagon pack.

Chaldron waggons(sic!)

I am delighted with the Seaham harbour model, as I am with the tree others sets (Londerry, Stella and NCB S.C.C versions). I also intend buying the Harton versions when these become available.

Harton colliery electric locomotives would be interesting models.....

Close to home

Its an excellent model and s these are still around at places like Beamish can be used in any time period.

I didn't need these... I didn't need the other set I bought either :) beautifully detailed wagon

Chaldron Wagons

The chaldron wagon is such a quirky item I decided that I had to have some although I've not got any thoughts of having a colliery. The reaction after removal from the box was that they were far too light and would not stay on the track, how wrong I was! If you like quirkyness and are thinking of making a small diorama these are the perfect size, all I need now to go with the wagons is a small steam loco with dumb buffers that match the positions on the chaldron and larger hoppers - or a horse!
Just shows that with a lot of thought, good design and manufacture anythings possible. Well done.

Excellent wagons

Superb detail, will probably need to add weight to ensure they stay on the track

Good model of an early prototype, filling a niche in the model world.
