In a video released to its new Dapol TV YouTube channel, the manufacturer shares features and design elements of its new 7mm:1ft scale wagons.
Dapol's new Youtube channel has featured a video describing the features and functionalities of the manufacturer's new O gauge 'Conflat' container wagons. Presented by Dapol's Neil Morrlle, the specification of the wagons is described, explaining the features and accessories to be supplied with each model:
Containers and the special wooden decked conflat wagons used to convey them were produced by the GWR, LNER, SR and LMS. They allowed door-to-door deliveries via road, rail and road, again, without the requirement for goods to be handled at each leg. In the main they were used for furniture removal, although some were built with insulation for refrigerated use. Post-nationalisation, BR built more than 10,000 containers, which continued into service until the arrival of the modern standard ISO containers in the 1960s.
