This page shows a selection of the excellent models of GWR road vehicles produced by Daryle Toney from modified or detailed kits to a variety of scales. I've put this model together using two of the Springside 30cwt lorries, cutting and shutting the rear body and chassis discarding the wheels that come with the kit and using wheels from ABS Models, these are from his Albion lorry which I think look spot on, the other detailing which I had to fashion includes riveted straps for the rear body, life guard rails between the wheels, re-sizing the doors, door handle, license holder, beading across the front either side of the radiator and a separate window frame modelled in an open position, all of this is visible in the pics as I used brass. Ford 'A' Van – the GWR had a couple of these and can be identified in the second GWR book from the Nostalgia road series. This model is how I think it would appear as there are no photos available that i'm aware of, the decals are home made to suit.
This is a 4mm scale 1933 Scammell Mechanical Horse with sided trailer, designed and originally produced by Alan Brackenborough. I've completed this kit in the pre-shirt button era as is defined by the lack of any doors. A final look at the Ford TT, placed here by a 1£ coin to show just how small these 2mm models are. This 4mm scale kit is available from the LGM model range, also under the name of DGM or Autocraft Models by Dave Gilbert.


I've built this one with no modifications other than using an etched brass GWR name plate on the cab above the windscreen and adding the decals and number plate.
Considering it was first produced back in the '80s it is very accurate with amazing detail and is a super quality kit unsurpassed even today. It was originally purchased as a secondhand built-up kit, which was then stripped of all paint, de-glued, soldered together and fitted with a new scratchbuilt flatbed. PW55), is a tricycle as used by the GWR c 1910 – three of them were used in London for local small parcel deliveries. In case readers are not aware, there are three of these books, vols 1 & 2 plus a third book which is a combination of the first two, however there are many items in the first two books that do not appear in the third and vice-versa. I believe it was later produced by Eames, and is now produced by ABS, unfortunately there is a problem with the mould at the moment and is not likely to be in production again for the near future, so your only hope is to find one on ebay, but expect to pay a premium for it!
The only additions I've made are brake linkages to the trailer, and made the coupling actually work so that the trailer can be left free standing. The shirtbutton transfer on the cab is by Fox transfers, and the Express Cartage Service lettering is homegrown to suit.


On the brighter side, I'm looking to produce the same vehicle for the John Day range of models with equal detail and more, including a variety of trailers.
Decals and one of the etched brass plates that I've had comissioned complete the model nicely.
Handrails have been added using 'N' gauge loco handrail knobs and wire, the decal is home made, also I replaced the mudguards with finer ones and repositioned them to be a more prototypical. The wagon dates from 1894 but could still be found at rural stations right up to the 1930s. An interesting little model which would look great on a station platform or in and about the town.
