KR Models selects Palbrick B for ‘OO’


KR Models launched its next ‘OO’ gauge wagon project at the 2021 Great Electric Train Show on October 2– BR’s 16ton Palbrick B wagon.

Built at Ashford Works in the late 1950s, the Palbrick B was one of three wagon designs developed for carrying bricks. These designs resulted in the Palbrick A, B and C variants, which featured different body width and capacity combinations, intended to accommodate the various sizes of wooden pallet used for loading bricks.

More than 1,400 Palbrick wagons were built, with many later converted for use as steel coil carriers, match wagons and 16ton mineral wagons. Some also became shell carriers at ordnance depots.

KR Models is to produce the numerous BR 16ton Palbrick B for ‘OO’, reflecting those built to diagrams 1/024 and 1/026 between 1957 and 1959.

Currently at the first Engineering Prototype (EP) sample stage, the wagon will feature a detailed moulded plastic body with distinctive end supports and tensioning screws, underframe brake equipment, turned metal wheels and small tension lock couplings in NEM pockets.

Supplied in triple-wagon packs, prices are set at £60 per pack, plus shipping. Release is scheduled during the first quarter of 2022.
