  1. Hi Arthur, I'm interested in those bulk cement containers. Have you got plans for them or did you just use photos. Also interested in knowing if the SML wagon has the same kind of adjustable pipe rail system and end stops as the "M" class wagons. Do you have any photos of these "M" wagons. Cheers Steve Hornabrook

  2. Hi Steve,

    The cement bins were 3’ 6” Models, they produced a HJC wagon with the bins. Some time ago I was given four bins without the wagon. I have a HJC on the layout, thus a good opportunity to do something different.

    I don’t have plans for the bins, the models are a block of poxy to the outside shape. I send you a photo of the SBC with bins.

    Below is a short run down of SM wagons. Most of the M wagons didn’t carry side loading ramps on the sides down each end. The brackets to carry the ramps were removed over time.

    Trust that helps.

    Did you get the info on the OP Tank Wagons ??

    Regards,

    Arthur.


    A new type motor vehicle wagon brings another class of platform wagons onto the QR network. In 1963, fifty 30 foot “S” wagons were converted to carry motor cars, they were classified “SM” wagons. The wagon had four securing bars that could move along the wagon across the floor, plus each bar had two brackets (one for each side) that could move across the bar. Bar and brackets were secured with bolts and nuts, loosen off the nut and the bar/bracket was free to move to any locations. The bars were placed under the wheels (one each end) and the brackets slid into beside the wheels. Tighten up the nut and the job is finished, no need to cart old sleepers to the wagon. To get the cars on and off the wagon, six portable ramp were provide, brackets on each side at the end of the wagon carried two ramps down beside the bogies. The ramps could be used for both side and end loading. It didn’t take to long before wagons were arriving without ramps, stations loading cars would miss returning the ramps to the wagons are loading. Or maybe they were just collected their own supply of ramps. After time the brackets were removed from the wagons, they were a pain in the butt for Train Examiner’s testing trains and changing brake blocks.

    It was no long before the medium size car got bigger, the 30’ wagon were to short for two cars resulting in a number of 32’ “H” wagons being converted, these were classed as “SML” wagons. Likewise a number of 26’ wagons were converted and classed “SMS” wagons. Weekly Notice 34/75 (21.08.75) advised that motor car carrying wagon class SMW had entered service which was 12 192 (40’) over headstocks on the 30th July 1975. Wagon diagram 197 showed the number as 39010 and was carriage 960 underframe. The bogies had 8 x 4 journals, 1524 wheel centres and 851 mm wheels.

    Weekly Notice 39/75 (25.09.75) advised entry into traffic of SMC wagons for motor cars which are 7315 (22’) over headstocks. Numbers 39011, 39012, 39013. Later 39075 was added. These wagons were cut down “Dinky Vans”. The W/N indicated the wagons were fitted with 7 x 3 bar frame bodies with 660 mm wheels. These wagons only had 2 securing bars. I’m aware of one keeping it original bogies.

    In 1978 motor vehicles wagons were reclassified. W/N 48/78 (07.12.78) stated:-
    The attention of all concerned is drawn to a new system of classification of motor vehicle carrying wagons. The new classification are being introduced to simplify identification of the wagons in accordance with their length. The following classes apply:-
    Class MS – Wagons up to 9.5 metres over headstock.
    Class M – Wagons exceeding 9.5 metres but less than 12 metres.
    Class ML – Wagons exceeding 12 metres.
    To comply with the new system, the following wagons will be re-classified.
    “SMC” and “SMS” to “MS”, “SML” to “M”, “SMW” to “ML”. (Going on that. “SM” (30’ or 9.144) wagons became “MS” wagons)
