Lionheart Trains O Esso 14-Ton Class A Oil Tank Wagon Silver 7F-058-001

Dapol 7F-058-001 O Gauge Esso 14-Ton Class A Oil Tank Wagon Silver

A new number for Esso silver painted class A oil tank wagon produced by Dapol from the tooling created for Lionheart Trains.
These oil tank wagons were built to orders from the air ministry during WW2 using a design from the late 1930s with the tank sitting saddle beam stretchers, restarined by braced end beams and fastened down with steel straps. The earlier diagonal bracing cables looped around the top filler being dispensed with. Most of the air ministry tankers were built as Class A wagons for highly flamible products like petrol and aviation fuel, using the standard RCH 17'6" long 10' wheelbase chassis equiped with either side brakes and oil axleboxes. A 4275 gallon cylindrical tank was fitted and usually platforms were provided either side of a central filler hatch, which was also used for discharging highly flamible loads.
A rail wagon has a life expectancy of 20-40 years and the new air ministry wagons were were sold on to the oil companies after the end of hostilities, many remaining in service well into the early British Railways era. A considerable number were donated to preservation societies and can be seen today in use as water carriers and in demonstration goods trains.

Model features diecast chassis parts to increase the weight and sprung axleboxes providing compensation for good running. Detailed solebars and brake rigging is moulded in robust ABS plastic.
Fitted with metal wheels, spung buffers and drawbar with hook and three-link coupling.
