OO Guage Horse Box/Trailer

3828 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Brossard
Can anyone tell me if you any of the leading manufacturers have produced any horse box/trailers as part of their Wagons collections.
I'm talking about the sorts of trailers that the GWR used to use to transport horses to stations such as Lambourn and Ascot.
Many thanks for your help in advance.

I am assuming you are referring to road going vehicles. If so Dinky made one in about O scale based on the Maudsley coach chassis. I have a feeling that Langley make or have made a kit.

It would also be fairly easy to convert an EFE or OOC model.

Was this the AEC with the Green body? - if so it was also a non superfast release.

And don't forget that Oxford Diecast are bringing out a Bedford TK articulated version in Chipperfields livery.

Additionally Budgie produced a Leyland cab with a number of different bodies - I think one of these was a horse box.

Just thought of another one - Dinky Dublo Land Rover with horsebox. However a mint and boxed one won't be cheap.
