DJM ‘RS’ Range (RS = Rolling Stock)
Despite my saying for a few years now that I would not touch rolling stock due to it’s smaller return for quite a large outlay. However, I have done a deal with a new (for me) and respected factory, that currently makes for 3 very well known model railway companies (2 in mainland Europe) to produce 5 N gauge wagons at what I consider to be a very reasonable price.
It’s worth noting that all 5 have been cad/cam designed and 1 is, as I write, in the tool room with a release date for March 2016*.
These are noted on attached pages to this release, but I will list them here…………..
Shark 20t Plough van (Awaiting Tooling)
Mermaid Ballast wagon (*in Tooling)
Turbot Bogie ballast wagon (final cad/cam design)
Bogie Boster E (final cad/cam design)
LSWR Road Van (Awaiting tooling)
Orders for these wagons can be taken by your DJM stockist from Monday and a full list of liveries and running numbers /product codes are available via the DJModels web site, RMweb and the modelling press.
The Mermaid and the Turbot will benefit from my ‘Quick load’ ballast system. Simply put it’s accurately moulded ballast load that can be unloaded from each wagon without taking the wagon off the rails by using a stick with a magnet on it to lift each load out quickly and easily, allowing a ‘return’ unloaded service train to run.
ZJO / ZJV ‘Mermaid’ N gauge Ballast wagon. RRP£19.95
Featuring NEM couplers, Close Coupling mechanism, partially see through chassis, fully detailed interior and exterior, Darkened profile wheels, Removable ‘quick load* ’ moulded ballast.
GWR and BR versions modelled. Authentic liveries, some with weathering**, multi packs available** with different running numbers (**to follow).
*Quick Load, is a quick way to load and unload the plastic ballast load using a simple magnet on a stick. No more taking each wagon off the rails to unload.

N Gauge LSRW Road Van RRP £22.50
Since designing this for Kernow Model Rail Centre and seeing it in the flesh, I have wanted to produce a model in N gauge.
So this is, in all honesty, a personal choice, rather than a profit led one. Mind you it’s one of those ‘I don’t need one, but I want one’ projects.
Many thanks to Kernow for allowing me to use their laser scan for this model, which features darkened profile wheels, NEM coupling, Close Coupling and separate handrails (where possible)
