New O Gauge Vans Now In Stock

 We are delighted to announce the arrival of the new GW, LMS & SR 12T Standard Vans, MOGO Vans & Fruit A Vans. These are going out to stockists at the moment and are also available direct from Dapol via our website.   

LMS Standard 12T Van

Between 1935 & 1936 7,500 12 ton vans were constructed to Diagram D1897, Lots 823,824 & 825 being vacuum fitted whilst Lot 826, 838, 839 and 840 was unfitted. Further similar vehicles were built up to 1945. Many non-fitted Vans were subsequently fitted by BR with automatic vacuum brakes, the pipes however were ‘coach fashion’ and did not have the LMS ‘wagon type’ upright pipe.

The adoption of the RCH 17’-6” underframe for the 12 Ton van in1927 coincided with a change in door design to vertical planking, and after 1932 the 10’-0” wheelbase was used, which the Dapol models replicate. Between 1933 and 1943 more than 8,500 vans were built both Vacuum and non-vacuum fitted to Diagram V23/V24 with a further 265 constructed between 1935 and 1939 to Diagram V26 code named ‘Parto’ (With internal partitions to protect loads from damage)

The MOGO had a 12-ton capacity and is fitted with end doors and wheel bars to allow a motor car to be loaded and transported in a goods train, hence its telegraph code 'MOGO'.  The early MOGO vans had planked bodies but were later constructed with ply body sides.

About 1000 fitted vans were built 1936-38 with even planked sides, the SR later built uneven planked versions as well as Ply sided vans later in their construction history.
