Minerva Model Railways has announced the production of an RTR, injection-moulded O gauge model of the private owner 'Iron Mink' van, in Blue Circle and Ferrocrete liveries. The models are in production with delivery expected in Spring 2020.

The 'Iron Mink' vans were built to a GWR design for the Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers (APCM). They operated from several cement works, including APCM’s large factory at Harbury in Warwickshire and were in service from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The models will only be available direct from Minerva Models via mail and telephone order, the Minerva website and from the Minerva Models’ stand at selected model railway shows. For pricing and availability, visit Minerva Models website: www.minervamodelrailways.co.uk
