Lane Bros – tank N
The Wagon Yard limited edition tank wagon in the livery of Lane Bros for the Warley Exhibition 2019. A limited edition of 100 pristine wagons made by Peco. Lane Bros. operated a large fleet of tank wagons initially from Birmingham and then Walsall. Little more is known about the company but we know from the photographs which exist that the company was in business in 1927 and the particular wagon modelled here was photographed at Woodford Halse in September 1963 still in service. ERA: 3, 4 and 5.
