5 inch gauge Southern Parcels van - stock code 4256

5 inch gauge Southern Railway parcel van, built by Doug Hewson for the man whose "Britannia" I recently had in. Highly detailed, complete with a padded seat cover and running boards for anybody brave enough to let sticky-fingered little children climb aboard - like the previous owner, I'd simply keep it in the study and admire it.

A highly-detailed, scratch-built model it is covered in fine detail work including dummy dynamos slung beneath with their check chains and vacuum pipe fittings at either end. Constructed of wood on a steel angle frame, it is complete with a fitted transport box.
