GWR road vehicles

Horse drawn vehicles


7mm horse dray, built by Kevin Atkinson. This is actually a Slaters Plastikard kit for an LMS dray, kit-bashed into a GWR type.

The conversion was done using micro strip, Plastikard and Slater's brass wire. It was finished with Precision and Humbrol paints, and HMRS transfers. You can see more of Kevin's 7mm models in the GWR Showcase section.


Here is a model of GWR 4½ ton horse drawn delivery wagon No. 256, built from the Langley white metal kit by an unknown modeller, with shire horses in front. Photos courtesy Eddie Holden.


This wonderful model shows a single horse drawn parcels collecting van, built in 1909 at Swindon works. The models was built by Geoff Butcher to the scale of 1½" to the foot. Many thanks to Tim Butcher for showing us these photos.
