Great Central diagram 1 2 plank livery

Postby garethashenden » Fri Feb 12, 2016 2:25 pm

I have a Bill Bedford kit for one of these nearing completion and I need help with the livery/numbering. I think It want "G C" on the sides with a grey body, is that correct for 1903? I have no idea what an appropriate number would be, or even how many digits it should have. Finally, would these have split spoke or solid spoke wheels?

The wagons are too old to make it into Tatlow's LNER wagons books, I've looked. If anyone has a prototype photo they could pass along that would be great.
Thanks!

I know this thread is a lityke old but here are some images from the GC publication "Per Rail". If it has posted wrong way, open the picture and it usually rights itself

Full "Great Central" name on side. Possibly early 1900 livery.

I don't have a full diagram book but some of these are recorded.

Photos in order

1/ The name spelt out in full suggests this is an implement wagon, though there seems to be no diagram.

2/ There is no digram for the single plank wagons, but a note on the 16' glass wagon says that these were converted for low goods wagons presumably of the same type as shown here. There's dumb buffered version on the right hand side. I wonder how long this load would survive in traffic?

3/ D.7 dropside and single plank

4/ Another D.7

5/ This is a D.4 three plank with fixed sides, though some had centre doors.
