Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron

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

Containing three wagons, numbered:

  • 12
  • 1825
  • 256

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.

Nice wagons with good customer service

This is the first time I have bought from Accurascale and am very impressed. Great looking wagons in fine detail, will buy again when new numbers released

Delightfully Quirky Wagons - 1

I bought these out of curiosity, mainly for display. I was so pleased with them that now I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate them into my existing layout or even into a small micro-layout. The amount of detail is fascinating for such a small model.

Coal wagons and Londonderry

Being from Londonderry/Derry myself, I couldn't resist buying these when I heard that they existed! We had quite a few coal merchants in the city during my younger days. So this adds a great novelty piece to my collection. The models, like everything else from Irish Railway Models, are excellent.

Childhood memories

Couldn't resist these little wagons as the Stephenson's wagon way ran past the bottom of my grandparents garden from Hetton colliery.
They are very well made and highly detailed. Shopping on the store is very straightforward, easy to search for what you want or interesting to browse.
The design of the packaging is exemplary and items were very well packed for safe delivery.

Beautiful well made and detailed models, highly recommended.

Fantastic little wagons

Lovely little set. Still amazing fidelity despite their apparent simplicity. Bought for future project of a mining museum micro layout after an inspirational visit to Beamish. Magnetic couplings are great and appreciate the inclusion of an extra for a loco.

Richard S.
Chaldron Wagons

These 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.
