This kit is for the diagram Great Central Railway 40 foot 12T bogie brake van of which six vehicles were built at Gorton in 1906. They were used on express goods, excursion and newspaper trains and are believed to have lasted to about the end of World War 2 because there was a shortage of such vehicles.

It is a re-release of the former R&E Models kit with re-mastered whitemetal components.

The kit is of etched brass construction and includes bogies and whitemetal axleboxes/springs and buffers. It can be built for 00, EM and P4 gauges.

Wheels (3ft. 7in. Mansell) and couplings (screw on the prototype), glazing, paint and transfers are needed to complete the kit.
