BR FERRYVAN VIX
NGS Ferryvan Production models now arrived. On sale in the NGS Shop from Tues 6th June
The Production run of BR Ferryvans has arrived at the NGS Shop and will be ready for sale June 6th 2023. below are recent photographs of the liveries available..
Keen-eyed members will also spot that there are variations in the ends; the first batch of wagons built-in 1962 had narrow uprights at each end, but the second and third batches (built from 1964) had reinforcements added from the upper horizontal rib to the buffer beam. The earlier wagons were subsequently given the same modification and photographic evidence suggests the entire fleet had been modified by 1970.
These differences are visually quite obvious, so the NGS model is being tooled to ensure that either variant can be depicted. Four livery options (plain brown; brown-flying crate; brown BR corporate and Railfreight red/grey) all come with two versions with differing running numbers. Chassis only units are also available for scratch-builders.
The models are offered for sale to members from June 2023.
Available from The NGS Shop at £30.00 for painted models, £26.40 for unpainted model and £24.00 for the chassis only
