GWR Siphon O1 (four wheeled) kit 7mm
About this Vehicle:
This 7mm ("O" Gauge) kit represents a Great Western Railway four wheeled milk van (O1)
This was a four wheeled vehicle and should not be confused with the six wheeled siphon which is also available as a kit from Diagram3D.
The original vehicle was produced in several lots between 1871 and the late 1880's. There were two distinct variations with differing door profiles. Sufficient parts are provided to complete either one of the versions of the vehicles. The kit is made from MDF with detail components etched into card overlays and 3D printed components including a roof, axleboxes and brake components.
These vehicles were modified over their lifetimes in keeping with applicable regulations. In general it is advisable to have access to a good reference work with photographs. A book was written on the development of these vehicles: “Great Western Siphons” (by Jack N. Slinn, Pendragon books 1986 in association with the Historical Model Railway Society). The book describes and enumerates these vehicles in detail.
