Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron

Pack E: Wearmouth Coal Co. - Three ex-NER P1 style Chaldrons, dating from the period 1900 to late 1920s/early 1930s.

Containing three wagons, numbered:

  • 1460
  • 1430
  • 1437

Each pack produced has been themed by colliery, and each waggon depicted is based on photographic evidence and reference to colliery records to confirm lettering styles. Some packs contain just one style of waggon, while others contain mixed styles where research has shown that they operated in conjunction with each other. 

Specification List:

  • Die-cast metal chassis with plastic body. Weight of 9g unloaded.
  • Operates over minimum radius curves (371mm, 1st radius set-track)
  • Five different body designs, covering a time period from 1840 to 1978.
  • Three styles of wheel design; split spoke, star spoke and wave spoke, to a blackened 00 gauge RP25-88 profile.
  • Three styles of braking arrangement and brake handles, with different block types and the more complicated Londonderry clasp type brake.
  • Three arrangements of ‘bang-boards’.
  • Additional, removable ‘greedy boards’ (horizontal board extensions to the body) to the Shildon Works built Chaldron, giving an increased coal loading.
  • Scale width wire handrails, metal pin jaw coupling and wire/etch handbrake levers.
  • Eroded metal/plastic detail parts, including grab handles, door securing pins, chassis chain points and safety chains in metal.
  • Wagons connected via an all new link fine chain with Neodymium magnetic heads, connected at the wagon via prototypical cotter pin coupling.
  • Two extra NEM fitted magnetic couplings supplied with wagon packs to allow for fitting to locomotives and/or additional rolling stock.
  • Artwork features authentic colliery markings and numbers, accurate to time period modelled and based on actual photographic evidence where possible.
  • Additional research assistance provided by Beamish Living Museum, Bowes Railway and the North Eastern Railway Association.

More era 1 rolling stock please

I have bought three triple packs of Chaldrons , all of which are excellent quality and superb detail . Hopefully Hornby's Locomotion No1 will be pulling them later this year. More Era 1 subjects please.

Great little wagons

I run an ‘anything goes heritage layout, so when these were announced I knew they would be perfect. I keep adding to the train, so I’ve got 15 now possibly more to come. They do run well for their size and weight, but they could do with being slightly heavier.

Great Chaldrons! My second set!

Now I have 12 beautifully detailed chaldrons. Fantastic work. Best couplers I have ever used.

Please consider making some accurate era one locomotives since the Lion and the TIger are not exactly accurate. Even doing the updated Rocket with green livery and lowered pistons would be a winner, especially if it was die cast metal and had the gear ratio done reasonably. Slow is better than fast for Era 1.

Chaldron Wagons

These are lovely little wagons and are something that would be found on locations in the Northumberland and Durham Coalfields. Whether in use or on a scrap line they set the scene for a North-east layout.

Wearmouth Coal Company Chaldron pack

They look the part. I keep them in a quiet siding and pretend it is Beamish. Do go there if you get the opportunity. It is a brilliant day out. I run them behind an old Hornby L&YR pug in LMS black. I took off the old coupling and superglued the extra magnetic coupling supplied to the pug. It works well, forwards and backwards. I know it is not prototypical but it looks good.

Fantastic little wagons! Superb runners and look amazing with additional ones and a peckett pulling them, the taking up the slack between each one is an amazing sight
