A new batch of ex-SAR / WHR B Wagon kits has been cast and are available exclusively from the FR's Shop.

You can buy them by visiting Porthmadog Harbour Station, or by mail order through calling the shop or visiting the website

I understand that the kits are already flying out of the door so if you're wanting one I wouldn't hang about.

I am delighted to announce that production has commenced of our latest 4mm / 009 kit for the ex-SAR NGY ballast wagons. Examples of these wagons can be found on the Welsh Highland Railway and the Vale of Rheidol Railway in Wales.

The kit mostly composed of cast resin pieces with some etched brass components to make the bogies, the handwheels and cogs for the ballast door mechanism.

These photos show a kit completed and painted.

Parts not included in the kit are wheels and brass bearings for the bogies and 0.5mm and 0.7mm brass wire. From early September this kits will be available from the Ffestiniog Railway's online shop

I am also able to take advance reservations direct priced at £35 + £2.50 p&p although kits ordered now may not be available until October as we are busy working through orders previously received. Email bostonlargsworks (at) btinternet (dot) com for more details.

As Readers of our other blog - Bron Hebog - will know I have decided to help the recently announced appeal to restore FR Large England engine Welsh Pony through sales of Boston Largs Works kits.

10%  of the purchase price of every kit will be donated to the fund until the day the locomotive turns a wheel under its own power for the first time since 1939.

It means that from today customers buying our existing DZ and B Wagon kits and the soon to be released NG-Y Ballast Wagon will also be helping to bring another iconic narrow gauge locomotive back to life.

Stocks of the kits are currently available through the FR's shop at Porthmadog Harbour station including the Festshop website

For all other enquires we're always delighted to receive your emails.
