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 flat wagons also formed the basis for the W & L sheep wagons with removable side frames dropped into sockets on the wagon floor. The body is also available as a kit for those who wish to update their flat wagons, these kits comprise the four moulded sides only in unpainted plastic and need assembling and painting.
Available in W&L Light Grey, G W Dark Grey, 3 different running numbers in each colour; or Data only in light grey. The wagon 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.
