4F-037-006 DAPOL 4-wheel conflat wagon with container in Southern Railway livery - weathered
Containers and the special wooden decked conflat wagons used to convey them were produced in great numbers by all four of the railway companies.
They allowed door to door deliveries via road, rail and road again without the requirement for the goods to be handled at each leg.
In the main they were used for furniture removal, although some were modified to be used with ice as refrigerated containers.
Post nationalisation BR built over 20,000 conflat wagons and these continued into service until the arrival of the modern standard ISO containers in the 1960s.
These model conflat wagon and containers are highly detailed and will be a great addition to your rolling stock.
