Wagon 22 was an open bogie vehicle of 8 ton capacity, built at the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway’s workshop at Pilton in 1903 to complement the existing fleet, which included a number of similar vehicles built by Bristol Wagon and Carriage Works. The LandBR had no regular freight workings, and goods vehicles were added to passenger trains as required. They were all fitted with vacuum brakes to allow them to be marshalled between the loco and coaches, and negate the need for a separate goods brakevan. Freight moved on the LandBR included coal, ballast, farm machinery, hay and even manure! From new all freight vehicles were painted light grey with black ironwork. Under Southern Railway ownership the wagons were repainted standard SR brown, and number 22 became SR number 28313. Our model faithfully represents this particular vehicle, with careful attention being paid to details in the livery, plus separately-fitted brake levers and vacuum brake pipes. As with all of our previous models in this scale, they are free running and complete with couplings, which plug into the integral NEM pocket.

PECO has always been a forward-looking family company with a long tradition of innovative thinking. The business started trading in 1946 and is now in its third generation.
From early days, PECO has concentrated its manufacturing skills on producing trackwork for the model railway enthusiast. Individual component parts was how it started, but this developed into HO/OO ready-made track with fibre sleepers. With plastics becoming more popular in the 1960s, PECO decided to introduce the famous Streamline range, which over the years has become one of the world’s leading brands for not just HO/OO but all scales from Z to G.
PECO currently produces no less than 20 track ranges, featuring both standard gauge and narrow gauge systems, plus a wide selection of complementary accessories and items to add scenic detail to your layout.
