Description

In 1923, the Great Western Railway started a concerted effort to introduce larger capacity coal/mineral wagons, to save shunting and enable shorter train lengths. They were colloquially known as Felix Pole wagons, after the GW’s energetic General Manager, who worked hard to promote their use. These 20ton wagons were built to a variety of diagrams, and in 1933, 5000 were constructed to Dia.N32 at a cost of £1 million, and rented to collieries.

They appeared in several private owner liveries, and Minerva will offer some of these additionally to the normal GW and BR colours. The four liveries are for the 16” GW livery, Amalgamated Anthracite, Blaenavon and British Railways. Further liveries may appear in due course.
