LNER 10 Ton Fish Van

  PROTOTYPE. The LNER built large numbers of standard type Fish vans during the 1930’s. This kit represents the 10 ton, 10ft wheelbase version. They lasted well into British Railways days and worked all over the country.

  They were XP rated and so could run in local passenger trains and one or two of these vans tacked onto the rear of a coastal branch line local, to convey the days catch landed at the harbour to the junction, would be a comon sight. These vans would then be attached to a passing fast freight or block fish train for rapid transit to urban fish markets.

  KIT. The etched body components are designed with overlapping and interlocking joints to help assembly, which is very straightforward. The sliding doors are white metal castings. A pre-formed brass roof is supplied.
