Cement Wagons

I've always had a soft spot for the BR Presflo cement wagons. With the 2mm Scale Association kit and a bulk flow from Westbury to Exeter Central it seems that I won't be able to resist a rake of these!

Cement Wagons Presflos

The prototype Presflo to diagram 1/273, numbered B888000 and built in June 1954 was a forerunner to diagram 1/272 which eventually totalled 1920 examples.
