Description

Limited edition weathered 4 plank wagon commissioned by Simply Southern and made by Dapol in 2021. Limited run of 54 pristine wagons. The Chillington Iron Company during it’s time was one of the largest iron producers in the Wolverhampton area. The ironworks were up and running by 1829 and over the coming years the works were exrtended and new land leased as the business grew. Chillington predated the opening of the MIdland Railway so in order to transport goods to and from the works they would have to haul to Yate Station and access the railway from there. The company had wagons from Gloucetser Railway Carriage and Wagon Co and were one of their earliest known customers. ERA: 1 and 2
