LB&SCR Flat Wagon ex.Ref Van Dia 1685
in 4mm and 7mm scales


During the "Great War" the London Brighton & South Coast Railway made a number of "Aeroplane Trucks" by converting bogie timber wagons into flat trucks. In 1923 they converted the underframe of the Bogie Refrigerated Van D28, by stripping off the body and putting on a flat deck. This was given Diagram 1685 and was withdrawn in 1929.
