China Clay Wagons
« on: September 16, 2019, 02:23:40 PM »

Following on from a couple of posts I've made in other threads I would like to ask the great collective a simple question:

Which of the NGS kits best represents an OWV? As seen here https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brclayliner

Which apparently is what China Clay was carried in out of Cornwall, it seems that the Farish/Kernow UCV's never really left Cornwall in any great numbers. There were a couple of flows of CHina Clay out of Cornwall but the stuff was carried in OWV's, the difference being the Bearings, OWV's have Roller Bearings whereas UCV's have Oil Filled bearings and so because of the speeds & distances required the Oil Filled bearings are not suitable.

So to cut a long diatribe short, I'm going to have to build a load of OWV's to put in a nice rake behind a Blue Class 40, mixed in with a couple of UCV's and some of the NGS's VVV's (Which I've already built) as MOD Traffic.

TIA

Neal.
