SAR NG DZ-9 ‘Dropside’ Wagon

The very first 'all steel bogie dropside wagons' were built for the Natal Government Railway in 1910, with South African Railways continuing to purchase them thereafter.
They saw use on many of the 2ft Gauge SAR Lines, carrying all manner of material from limestone to sugar cane.

A number of these extremely useful vehicles have been preserved in the UK, and can be seen in departmental use on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland, Vale of Rheidol and Lynton and Barnstaple Railways.

However, ‘Endon Valley Decals’ produce appropriate decals and these can be customised to suit your requirements.
