Producers of private owner model railway wagons, West Wales Wagon Works, have commissioned a limited run of 100 models of our restored Mountsorrel wagon number 359.
Community volunteers including a group of 7 teenage girls, worked on Tuesday evenings throughout the winter of 2010 to restore number 359 into Mountsorrel Granite Company livery for use as part of historical recreations on the restored Mountsorrel Railway.
West Wales Wagon Works owner Michael Martin commented “It is inspirational to see young people, particularly a group of girls, volunteering their spare time to restore railway wagons and preserve part of their heritage. We thought that as a testament to their dedication and hard work, it would be fitting to produce a OO gauge model of the wagon they restored to allow the public to share in their achievement”.
When ordering please mention that you have read the update on the Mountsorrel Railway website and West Wales Wagon Works will donate £1 from each wagon you order to the Mountsorrel Railway Project. Don't delay in ordering though, only 100 models have been produced and these are likely to sell quickly!
