Welshpool & Llanfair Cattle Van

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway was well provisioned with goods rolling stock when it was opened in 1902, all of which was supplied by Pickerings and the majority of which survived the closure of the line.  The initial order included two of these vans built to carry seven beasts, equipped with top doors and ramp with a single brake and later fitted with safety chains.

Available in W&L Light Grey, 2 different running numbers in each colour; or Data only in light grey, dark grey and bauxite.  We have not offered the cattle vans in GWR branded livery because the GWR rebuilt them extensively when they acquired them.  The van comes with a 45mm insulated wheel set fitted but a 32mm wheel set is provided for use on ‘0’ gauge. Couplings are chopper type but have a hook fitted if you wish to remove the chopper hook and use 3 link chains.
