Dapol delivers GWR Parcels Railcar

THE Great Western Railway’s railcars have long been sought after by modellers and in 2017 Dapol released the first ready-torun Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon (GRCW) streamlined version. It joined the long-standing Hornby (ex-Lima) model of the later GWR built vehicles, which had more angular bodywork.

January saw the arrival of a second batch of streamlined railcars from Dapol which included brand new tooling for 1936 built No. 17, which was a dedicated parcels car. This vehicle was unique and Dapol has sought to replicate it in ‘OO’ gauge in both GWR and BR period colour schemes.
