TMC EXCLUSIVE 24.5T MINERAL WAGONS
TMC have commissioned Bachmann to produce the 24.5T Mineral Wagon in OO Scale. This completely new tooling creates a family of wagons covering most variances.¬¨‚Ä†These differences include two types of axle box, three types of buffers and three¬¨‚Ä†different bodies. Covering the period from BR Steam and well into the TOPS era. Between December 1952 and September 1962 BR built 3,395 24.5T mineral¬¨‚Ä†wagons to diagrams 1/115 and 1/118. The wagons were built by BR works at¬¨‚Ä†Ashford and Shildon. They were built primarily for coal traffic to coal fired¬¨‚Ä†power stations and large industrial locations and often worked in block trains. A good number were lettered for specific routes but in practice often strayed from these routes. A small batch were produced with pressed side doors and there were differences in buffer types and axle boxes as well. Their duties meant that they could be found from Scotland to South Wales, virtually anywhere where coal was mined at the time. In later life some had doors sealed or removed and were used to¬¨‚Ä†convey other types of load such as sand. The TMC models will cover many of the detail variances to be found on these wagons.
