LNER-BR Boplate

Ex Parkwood Models kit.  The basic Boplate design for carrying steel plate was introduced by the LNER in the 1930s, and with changes to bogies and brakes, the design lasted into the 1990s. Three variants are available:

  • LNER/BR Unfitted with diamond frame bogies,
  • BR Vacuum Fitted with Plateback bogies,
  • Those converted to air brakes 1979-82 which were fitted with Y25 bogies.

Decals sheet contains markings for all three kit versions, enough for at least 3 wagons in all eras of use and includes LNER markings.
