35ton glw Oil Tanker - Class A and B

Picture copyright Esso

The BR Modernisation plan of 1955 saw the need for larger tank wagons. Charles Roberts developed the first of these - a 35 ton glw (Gross Laden Weight) fuel tanker for ESSO.


OR76TKA001    Staveley Chemicals

OR76TKB003  - Regent

Produced in two variants - Class A for lighter fuels and usually painted in a silver based livery, and the less flammable Class B fuels - which came with a heater unit to assist in unloading. The Class B livery was typically based on a black painted body as shown in our picture.

We will correctly produce both variants with the different length tank bodies and the original and upgraded suspension systems.

These wagons were incredibly long lived and were in regular use through into the 1990's.
