Queen Mary Brake Van

NGK441-446 Queen Mary brake van (RTR3)

SR Brown/Vermillion. This model represents the doyenne of the type, dating from 1936. The vermillion will be slightly enriched on the final models.
Note the white-painted wheel rims.
BR Bauxite – early version.This model features the earlier, lighter shade of BR Bauxite and Gill Sans lettering. It has no electrification flashes.
BR Bauxite – late version.From the mid 60s a darker shade of bauxite was used, and boxed numbers in Rail Alphabet were introduced. This model also incorporates the then-new electrification flashes.
BR Engineers’ Olive. This model has the eye-catching hazard stripes on each end. It also features both air and vacuum brakes as befits a vehicle with the TOPS code YTX. Note the correct painted solebar.
CE Engineers’ Dutch. This model features the popular sector era civil engineers livery of grey with a upper bodyside yellow band that became known as “Dutch” due to its resemblance to the livery applied to some trains in the Netherlands.
EWS. EWS retained a few Queen Mary brake vans for propelling moves along branch lines, or for occasional use elsewhere. Our version features air brakes but no sandbins and correctly has slightly different lettering on each side. This particular wagon saw service from the West of England right up to Scotland.
The models feature considerable attention to detail, from the precise hazard flashing on the ends of the Engineers’ Olive version, following each angled panel, to the separately fitted air pipe along the solebar of the EWS version which has been, correctly, picked out in white.
