SAR ‘Type 1’ ‘B-Wagon’

The earliest variant of the ubiquitous ‘B-wagon’, which features a range of detail differences compared to the later ‘Type 2’; in particular the ‘Type 1’ features a much greater degree of riveted construction, with different end and door details. These vehicles were seen in use over many of the SAR 2ft gauge lines, sometimes in block trains of up to 12 vehicles or more; but also mixed in with other workings.

A number of these wagons have found their way into preservation in the UK; in particular on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways, where they are in departmental use. A pair were also converted for use as ‘bike wagons’, although they are no longer used as such, with cycles now being accommodated in the brake carriages. Should there be demand, I will produce the ‘bike wagon’ variant; please enquire if interested.

Most of the vehicles represented in the range were built in significant quantities. As such no lettering or numbering is provided as it would be impractical to include so many numbering options. However, ‘Endon Valley Decals’ produce appropriate decals and these can be customised to suit your requirements.
