|A valuable contribution to the published research into the history of British railway wagons that will appeal to both modellers and historians.
This publication complements LNWR Wagons Volumes 1 and 2 from Wild Swan Publications, providing details of a number of more rare and unusual wagons including agricultural engine trolleys, propeller wagons, shunting wagons and chemical pan trolleys.
Information on the wagons covered, some of which were made in very small numbers, is very scarce and the author Peter Ellis has put considerable effort in obtaining and restoring the available drawings. These are not reproduced to any particular scale, but to sizes which ensure that they can be clearly read. The detailed drawings are complemented by the few rare photos that exist.
The wagons covered in this publication are LNWR diagrams:
47 Propeller Wagon
51 Shunting Wagon
61 Chemical Pan Trolley
78 Agricultural Engine Trolley
73 Dock Trolley
74 Platform Trolley
80 Platform Trolley
98 Wire Rope Trolley
104 Ingot Trolley
106 Chemical Pan Trolley
This 60 page, card bound publication is an important one for the modeller of the LNWR, with twenty seven drawings, nine photographs and a detailed summary of the wagon types described. The research that went into the production of this volume was of high quality, in keeping with the standard of the Wild Swan LNWR wagon books.
