Rolling Stock Kits

Hudson ‘All Steel’ Drop-Side Bogie Wagon (a.k.a. Ffestiniog Railway ‘Locoal’)

These kits represent vehicles originally built to the design of Robert Hudson, many of which were originally used at the RAF Munitions Store at Fauld, in Staffordshire. However, they have proved a useful and long-lived design, with many finding their way into preservation. Amongst others, examples can be found at the Apedale Valley Light Railway, Lynton and Barnstaple Railway and Welsh Highland Heritage Railway; predominantly in departmental use. A number are also to be found on the Ffestiniog Railway, who originally purchased them from the MOD with a view to using them for transporting locomotive coal; hence the ‘Locoal’ moniker. Ironically, this was a duty for which they were seldom used, as the railway converted to oil firing not long after their acquisition. Since then, they have found their way into use with the ‘Infrastructure Department’ and remain in regular use; carrying just about anything.

These kits are the perfect accompaniment to the Hudson 4W (RAF) Wagon and MOD Flat Wagon kits, which are also available from the Resurgam Range. Alternatively, they would be suitable for anyone looking for a small to medium sized bogie wagon.
