Prototype info

The Royal Arsenal internal railway system was extensive, stretching to 88 miles at Woolwich in south east London. A wide variety of rolling stock was provided over the 142 years of operation. This wagon represents an 18" gauge gunpowder van, used in the safe transportation of this explosive material around the Arsenal. An example has been preserved by the Greenwich & District Narrow Gauge Railway Society and is on display at the Conwy Valley Railway Museum, Betws-y-Coed, Wales.
