The Wagon Yard, a small family business based in St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, commissions limited-edition wagons in N and OO scales from Peco and Dapol and plans to expand into other gauges in the coming months.
Everyone behind the enterprise is a model railway enthusiast with a particular love of wagons and rolling stock.
The Wagon Yard’s first release, an orange, black and white seven-plank ‘G Russell, West Marina, St Leonards-on-Sea’ wagon, is still available, and the latest releases include a ‘Henry John Gasson’ box van and a seven-plank ‘Victoria Coal Co.’ wagon.
Seven wagon releases have been completed to date, with commissions due for the International N Gauge Show in September and the Warley Exhibition in November.
N-gauge versions of the wagons each cost £12.95 and OO-gauge versions £14.95, with standard postage and packing at £3.95, and they can be bought on thewagonyard.co.uk website.
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and commission suggestions from customers are always welcome.
