A glimpse of our next traditional Irish goods wagon. Pre-production renderings of the GSR Bulk Grain wagon.

 We expect to have a pre-production sample ready by March 2021.

These wagons were quite an advanced design by the standards of the 1930s.

Our 20T Brake Van has been a test of what could practically be achieved in terms of detail and standard of finish with 3D printing and we are taking this a step further with the ladder and modelling the discharge gear.

The company and private owner versions of the grain wagons operated from the mid 1930s until CIE phased out loose coupled operation and closed private mill sidings during the mid 1970s.

We expect to make a decision on whether the wagons will be produced in kit or rtr form by mid February the majority of our suppliers having returned to work after the Christmas/Southern Hemisphere Summer Holidays.

If you read the last paragraph of Mayner’s post again, you’ll see that they haven’t decided yet about RTR.

Sorry about the duplication, I got called away to feed our Bengals before I had finished!

Some photos of our pre-production sample painted in dark grey similar to GSR & early CIE ownership. I had planned to finish the model as 16407 with stencil numerals and flying snail but ran into problems with the decals.

Overall I am reasonably pleased with the model though we have to beef up the hopper discharge gear.

The 20T Goods Brake is currently on track for a Mid 21 release, we expect to have decorated samples of the flying snail version for review in the Northern Hemisphere by April/May.
