Irish Railway Models reveals new H van

09 May 2024
The manufacturer has announced a new OO model of the standard CIE goods van will join its range.

Probably the least surprising addition to the "Project Bulleid" programme of wagon launches around the famous triangulated chassis, the H Van is the must-have wagon for anyone modelling mixed goods trains during the heyday of CIE freight operations. 

Seen in long mixed trains alongside their counterparts, the corrugated opens, the flats, grain wagons, and more, they were a staple diet in the Autumn of steam operations along with the beginning of the diesel era.

Modelled in ready-to-run format for the first time, details include brass bearings to ensure the smoothness of running characteristics, a high-quality die-cast chassis for weight, a wealth of separately applied details including fine plastic and metal brake rigging, injection moulding as well as crisp tampo printing and paint application, the Bulleid wagons set a new standard for IRM rolling stock.

Available to pre-order now, the wagons are due to arrive in stock in Q4 2024 and are priced at €89.95 for each triple pack, with 10% off when you order two more sets. Unfitted variants will follow in a future production run.
