LMS 12-ton Covered Goods Vans
Issue 205 (2011)
In 1934 the LMS introduced a new covered goods van. From this prototype several diagram variations were made during the thirties and forties, and these can be modelled from the long established Ratio kit. LMS modeller Mick Moore, whose work has frequently appeared in the pages of MRJ, set about exploring the possibilities. He found that he could build unfitted Diagram 1897, and vacuum-fitted Diagram 1891 from the parts, and if he pitched his period during the mid 1930s, he could model wagons painted before and after the 1936 livery changes when LMS grey was replaced with bauxite on goods wagons.
