The Grampus wagon is a general purpose engineers wagon based on a tried and tested GWR design. This proven background enabled them to see heavy duty service with BR from their introduction in 1959 through to the 1990’s, and Dapol’s new N gauge version has captured the prototype very well indeed.
Used primarily for the transportation of ballast and spoil, they also feature drop-sides and removable ends making them useful for transporting rail sections, sleepers and chairs and as such make an excellent general purpose wagon.
The 20T Grampus wagon is modelled as per the prototype with clasp brakes and roller bearings. There are currently three liveries available from Dapol: departmental black, departmental red (or Indian Red on product label) and Taunton Concrete Works green.
The wagon comes complete with a removable ballast load, painted interior and wood-planked floor.
