This new 7mm. finescale fitted SR (Ex. LB&SCR) Dia. 974 6-wheel “Perishables” van fleet number 2093 in lightly weathered brown livery was scratch-built and painted by Peter Callon. The model depicts one of 6 vehicles built by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway in 1910 for butter and other perishables from the port of Newhaven. The vans were built with double roofs with insulation materials between. No other form of insulation or refrigeration was provided. During Southern Railway days some of the vehicles could be seen on the Callington branch. They were withdrawn between 1937 and 1941. The model has Slater’s Mansell wheels, and the two outer wheelsets are compensated (Walsall Engineering parts). Buffers (by “Haywood”) and couplings (by SideLines) are sprung. Custom-made storage box.
