ICI – Soda Ash 16T

Here we have two of Tower Models Limited Edition 16T open wagon in the ICI Mond Div. livery. After a lot of research by both Graham and myself we had to concede that there was not many photos available. All we could find was withdrawn wagons that had obviously been standing about for a long time! These photos in fact did throw up a difference to the wagon as we knew it – the ones in the photos had a ‘high bar’ fitted to keep the ‘tarp’ from the Soda Ash. We thought we would add this item to add a bit of interest, after as much research as possible I came up with a design, made a prototype and then manufactured two to fit the wagons.

An interesting little project, we have done the best we can – and hopefully it is near the prototype!
