Welcome to Provincial Wagons

This is a temporary website. If you need one of my kits, please email me at: lesliemcallister@aol.com

About Provincial Wagons: I began this operation solely to help me populate my own 00 Gauge  model railway, which was based on part of the Great Northern Railway of Ireland.

At first, I offered short-run commissions of standard Dapol wagons, which sold well and a couple of thousand are running on railways around the Globe. Then I met Michael Rayner and persuaded him to produce a resin kit of an Irish wagon for me and that started a whole new chapter. Thanks to Michael’s considerable skill as a modeller, the range of kits now runs to about twenty different kits.¬†

I invite the reader to access the Irish Group on RMWeb, or the Irish Railway Modeller website to see the kits built and running on many layouts.

If you are a purist and modelling on 21mm gauge, many of my kits are adaptable and I will sell them to you without wheels.

The list includes:

  • GNR(I) Wagons
  • SL&NCR Wagons
  • a single GSWR Wagon ( a brake van)
  • CIE wagons (up to about 1970)

With others having now produced ready to run models of (largely post-1970) wagons, it’s close to the time to call it a day. However, no-one looks likely to produce RTR GNR wagons, so my kits are still available – some are very easy to build, others require a reasonable amount of skill.

Simply contact me for a full list. The activity is by way of a hobby and this website may not ever be completed – I have other agenda.

But, if I help, send me an e-mail, by cutting and pasting the address above.
