HISTORICAL NOTES

O Gauge (7mm scale)

In 1887 the Railway Clearing House (RCH) issued its first set of specifications, which although not mandatory, did set down certain dimensional and other requirements in the construction of private owner wagons.

It is a wagon built to these specifications that our model of the Gloucester Railway Coach and Wagon Company 5 plank open wagon, side and end door, represents.

This private owner wagon was one of four purchased with the name Pounsbery. Our 7mm ('O'Gauge) kit makes number 1 the prototype, which was painted in green with cream lettering shaded red. It was built in 1896, and it would be 6 years before numbers 2,3 and 4 were built, but by this time its distinctive green was replaced by black.

As was typical of the period a brake was fitted on one side only.

The colour match for this vehicle is G.W.R. Locomotive green, with matching solebars. The ironwork was painted black.
