I was born in Shildon, Co Durham and spent many days playing around the pit coal yards, brickwork, quarries and railways, as us kids did back then! Remember the sound of the ear piecing screeching brake stuck on the coal wagon as it was hauled along by a class 2o or a 37 loco, the smell and noise from the diesel engine as it throttled up to pull its load up the incline, waiting to see if the penny you had placed on the rail had been squashed and flattened out? The old heavy industrial sites now derelict and long gone were some of the best playing fields we ever found.
Having strong links with the original wagon works in Shildon, it seemed a fitting tribute to those craftsmen who worked there to pick up the old name of the famous wagon works, give it a new lease of life in the form of making high quality Gauge 3 model rail wagons. All my models are made of wood and metal to keep to the realism of these work horses which are part of our disappearing railway heritage.
Take a look at my individually hand built wagons, built with raw materials just like their real counter parts.
You will receive a unique piece every time. Each plank is cut to size every rivet, nail, nut and bolt fitted by hand. Painted in plain or privately owned company rolling stock designs. Every wagon has its own uniqueness about it so you know you have an unparalleled unique wagon of your very own.
I have some in stock but mostly built to order, select your choice of products or if you can’t see what you need, simply get in touch for a wagon of your own choosing.
You can now purchase these in my new kits, and enjoy the satisfaction of building your very own Shildon Wagon.
