LMS Covered Van, grey  

NE Low-side open wagon

The majority of the Trix 4-wheel wagons were manufactured in tinplate in a variety of railway company liveries, including LMS, LNER, Southern, and BR. Several of the early pre-war wagons have large LMS and NE lettering. As with all Trix rolling stock, pre-war items have couplings made from a cast metal hook and wire link (see photos above). Post war, the 'Peco' style automatic hook was fitted, similar to that used on Hornby-Dublo railways.

Esso tank, silver, cast frame

Shell BP tank, plastic

In the early 50's, the tinplate underframe that had been used on wagons since the 30's was replaced with a diecast frame (as on the Esso tanker above). The first version of the cast frame did not have tinplate brake gear, and was deeper with an extra row of rivets. These wagons are quite rare, but not valuable. At the end of the fifties, Trix discontinued the tinplate-bodied wagons and started manufacturing wagons in plastic, with new cast frames. Later, the cast frames were replaced with plastic, resulting in all-plastic rolling stock (as on the Shell BP tanker above).

Wagons are listed in the table below:
  • British Railways (BR), Southern Railways (SR), London Midland Scottish (LMS), London North Eastern Railway (LNER and NE)
  • Prewar (pre 1939), Postwar (1948 -)
