The Derbyshire Carriage & Wagon Co Ltd – 7 plank OO
Special edition wagon produced for the Bachmann Collectors Club in 2001. Based in New Whittington, north of Chesterfield the Derbyshire Carriage & Wagon Company was a mid sized builder which generally produced small orders of wagons (despite the name no carriages were ever produced by the company). In 1938 it received its largest known order for 500 wagons from Bolsover Colliery Co. The company survived until 1967 producing stock for the BR modernisation, but once this work dried up it survived for a few more years before being taken over. ERA: 3. This model is in superb, like new condition with all buffers and couplings intact. Box is in good condition.
