Kris
Found the photo I was looking for-the converts had curved side's and two windows by the ducket.
We still used the standard S.R. vans on ballast jobs when I packed it in 10 years ago.

P.S.- I never saw a converted one myself,only the standard type.

OK thanks Steve, I looked for photos on line and did not find anything at least I think so,

Back to wagons I weathered this Dapol tanker which is not very old but something a bit different.

a contrast in 6 wheel tankers, United dairies Wrenn version was a double carryover hence the number W4657 this is quite a late production example.

Try a guards van the Southern had 40 electric locos converted to brake vans such as this one.




I did understand that a lot of the Southern Railway "Queen Mary" bogie brake vans used re-cycled bogies from withdrwan coaching stock...

The Southern Railway, and Southern Region were always good re-cyclers. Old rail re-used to make Signal Posts, even traction motors were re-used from withdrawn stock...like the 4-REP motors fitted to some "Wessex" units!

Another Bachmann example...with a little weathering.

This one has had the extra steps (included in the parts bag) applied to the bogies...





I am not so sure about how it could get to North Wales though. (It will probably have to run with the layout in Southern Region mode! wink.gif )

I think there was a bit of interest in the Siphon van earlier on so here is one of my Lima Siphon G in Palethorpes livery, this train is called the 'Nowcaster sausage' as it has 4 of them and two BG's. These run very well.

No interest then, how about a plain one?

Siphon G by Lima.

Always wondered if any Siphons did carry that livery, Khris! I have one of the GWR ones which goes into my expresses when running GWR days.

Not sure certainly some wagons/vans did but Sarah would know.

Meanwhile showing its age with fading is this doublo tank for Royal Daylight/Esso must date from about 1958 it still has a double chassis.

I didn't know....but I have had a look around and found that the Lima Syphon is unlikely to be correct...

On the other hand....



The Hornby 6-wheel Palethorpes wagons were based on the LMS wagons (6 of them!), the basic design also being used for Fish Vans...

(Hornby also made this in the GWR livery, which did have similar wagons....)

After a long time away from this topic thought I would add in some late additions.

Catching my eye has been this LMS cattle wagon by Bachmann, OK the cattle traffic was given up but cattle wagons lingered with other loads, I like the woody look of the thing adds some variety to the usual variety

Then there is this Petrol Tanker of the Carless company, this beige and red line livery is probably older may even be from the pool days, dunno but I liked it, the Hornby coupling is a large Wrenn/Triang type which is a bit odd and it has the suspicious white tank top so a project for improvement and weathering but I kinda like it all the same. Was in the Hornby catalog of recent date.

The Bachmann Cattle Wagon has been around a long time now....I think it is an ex Mainline model.

It is based on a Midland Railway wagon.

I have seen these converted into a reasonable representation of a LBSCR Cattle Wagon.....



The tank wagon livery is certainly similar to the POOL and War Office wagons....

Most Petrol Tankers had red-painted solebars....possibly as a replacement for the red line livery????

OK so with time on my hands I decided to complete the Esso tanker train which also features Royal Daylight and Power Ethyl, nothing new with plant derived fuels and yes this was associated with Esso back along, I have wanted one of these for ages.

So I completed the rake with a silver Esso, a black Royal Daylight and a blue Esso as well as the green Power Ethyl, sadly the filler tops were missing, also wheels a mess but I sorted those and they run fine now, anyway now 12 tankers and two barrier wagons make up the rake.
