Forming the backbone of goods transportation in Britain through to the 1960s, ventilated vans are a central addition to Hornby’s growing range of TT:120 scale wagons. A critical component for a model railway of any size, this goods van is available to buy now from the Key Model World Shop for £22.99 (RRP £24.49).

A ubiquitous element of Britain’s railways through to the 1960s, wooden-bodied ventilated vans were designed to transport almost any type of perishable or palletised goods. Built by the thousand by both private owners and the ‘Big Four’ railway companies, they could be seen in any length of freight train across the rail network, and even added to passenger services.

The 12-ton ventilated goods van built by the LNER is the latest addition to Hornby’s TT:120 freight stock range and is suitable far beyond lines owned by the LNER. Decorated in standard pre-war grey with large NE white lettering and carrying the number 134459, the vent van is suited to the 1920s and 30s (era 2), featuring refined moulded wooden plank relief and a detailed underframe.

A vital addition to any steam-era model railway, ventilated vans should not be overlooked for layouts from the largest to smallest shunting puzzles. Further expanding the range of pre-BR wagons offered by Hornby in TT:120, the NE van is ideal for use with Hornby’s era 2 and 3 rolling stock of any region.

Product highlights include:

  • LNER 12-ton vent van No. 134459 in NE grey

  • NEM standard removable couplings

  • Turned metal wheels

  • High detail moulded underframe

  • Core component to any steam era model railway with universal operation
