Whitemetal kit: Midland Railway, LMS & BR - Diagram 336/336a: Long low wagon in 4 mm scale
Built from the 1890s onwards these versatile flat bed wagons were used for a variety of traffic. Some 500 were built to 4 lots between 1895 and 1910. There were two versions the first an 8 ton wagon with grease axle boxes and single side brakes (D336) and second a10 ton with oil axleboxes, heavier duty springs and either side brakes (D336a). The oil axle box wagons having heavier springs tended to be slightly higher of the rail. Originally intended for agricultural machinery they were used to transport a wide range of machinery, road vehicles, containers etc. Inevitably modifications and enhancements occurred after build and many D336 wagons would receive either side brake gear and perhaps even oil axle boxes. The long low was a long lived wagon with many examples lasting till the 1950's and at least one survived till 1961 in departmental use.
