M&SWJR Kits & Models

 


This page includes various references and links on modelling the M&SWJR, as well as a list of the M&SWJR kits known to the author at the time of writing. If you know of any additional kits (past or current), please do send me an e-mail. There is also a short list of some of the GWR locos that typically plied the M&SWJR routes after grouping in 1923.

Many thanks to Michael Barnsley, Phillip Young, Richard Kelham, Russ Elliott, Chris Yates and Paul Absalom for input to this page.
