Guildford exclusive for KMRC


Kernow Model Rail Centre (KMRC) has revealed its latest exclusive ‘O’ gauge wagon commission from Dapol, a 1902 RCH seven-plank open wagon finished in Thomas Mitchell and Sons of Guildford livery (Cat No. K7072).

Surrey brick and tile manufacturer Thomas Mitchell and Sons operated a large brick works in Guildford and by 1902 had their own black and white liveried private owner wagon for transportation of coal to the works.

KMRC’s exclusive new ‘O’ gauge wagon reflects vehicle 1902 with T. Mitchell and Sons lettering and utilises Dapol’s RCH 1887 spec 9ft wheelbase seven-plank open wagon. It features a compensation beam, spoked metal wheels, sprung metal buffers and separately fitted detailing.

Matthew Higgs, KMRC’s Guildford branch manager said: ”I’m pleased that we are able to announce our Guildford T. Mitchell wagon. With the growth of ‘O’ gauge recently this wagon was an obvious choice for an exclusive model with it being local to our shop in Guildford and should complement some of our future projects rather nicely.”

Priced at £56.95, this exclusive new wagon is available now.
