As the car industry boomed after the war, large numbers of motor car manufacturers set up plants in the Midlands. Therefore there was enough ‘traffic’ for the Midland Railway company to build a ‘car transporter’ for the rails or a Motor Car Van. They built 6 wheel 31 foot long vans to accommodate the cars. The first Lot 609 had square corners whereas later lots produced had rounded corners.
This kit is of the 6 wheel 31 foot long vans with the square corners - Lot 609. These Vans had Louvre's in the end  panels which is also not found in later models.  Although there was ventilation for perishable goods, they were labelled Motor Car Vans and were only used for transporting cars. These vans were passenger rated so could be used on passenger trains as well as goods trains.
The Motor Car Vans were painted in a Midland Red (Crimson Lake) colour with a grey roof.

Each kit will be supplied with a 3D printed body, and water slide decals.  I plan to do a few running tests on my layout as I know from experience using 6 wheeled rolling stock it can jump off tight curves, and hence my additional testing.

Please note this kit does not include the Stove R chassis, you can purchase it from the N Gauge society.

Craft knife
Small fine file or fine sandpaper
