Description

Dapol 7F-016-001 10 Foot Chassis Wagon B880898 Fyffes Banana Van Bauxite.

To meet the rapid rise in demand for bananas shipped in from the Caribbean, specially constructed steam heated banana vans were manufactured with plywood cladding and insulated bodies that allowed bananas to be shipped in green and ripened en route.

There is a later variant, built typically in the 1950’s, that was steam piped allowing the easier running of interconnected block trains. This type of banana van was often characterised by a large yellow spot on each side and had a 12t capacity.

These model banana vans are highly detailed and will be a great addition to your rolling stock. They feature metal sprung buffers, fine application of livery, accurately moulded body & chassis, a 3 link metal coupling chain and sprung coupling hook, self-compensating chassis for smooth trouble free running and finely profiled wheels and axles with brass bearing pockets.

It measures 144mm (length including buffers) by 54mm (width) by 75mm (height)
