Alexander Crane – 7 plank wagon N gauge
Limited edition 7 plank private owner wagon made by Dapol for Antics in 2005. Limited edition of 250, certificate included. Alexander Crane was a coal merchant in Gloucester from 1879 until his death in 1915. The business seems to continued with one of Crane’s children at the helm but by the late 1920’s a different comapny is operating at Crane’s address and the business no longer appears in trade directories. The wagon modelled here was made by the Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Company in 1902 and was registered with the GWR. ERA: 2. Wagon is in excellent condition with all buffers and couplings intact, box in very good condition.
