Oxford Rail’s selection continues to develop with new variants on its Adams Radial and Dean Goods locomotives.
During the First and Second World Wars numerous Dean Goods locomotives were seconded by the War Office and placed into war service. Dean Goods No. 2533 was one such locomotive and had at the start of the Second World War been requisitioned by the War Department and shipped over to France.
The Oxford Rail model is representative of WD 101 as it was first outshopped for service in France and will be available early next year.
The first model that Oxford Rail produced more than three years ago was the private owner seven-plank wagon and in that time there has been a steady demand for additional liveries to be applied on this very popular wagon. Not to disappoint, a further six liveries will become available early in 2018.
Among the new names to appear on the sides of the seven-plank wagon will be NCB, both in a pristine finish as well as weathered. The other new wagons will carry the liveries of Napsbury Hospital, Horlicks and Bass.
There will also be two additional weathered wagons that are currently only available with a pristine finish. These wagons, Wigan Coal & Iron Co and Fulton Coal, will see their weathering applied in Wales and each pack will carry a ‘Weathered in Wales’ label.
