IY Open Wagon Kit

The IY wagons were originally introduced to traffic as 20 tons capacity I wagons, featuring larger axle journals than the standard 16 tons capacity I wagon. Numbered 15220 to 15569 inclusive, they were placed on register from 1/10/1926 to 7/1/1927, but were recoded IY from 1929 and given a dual load rating of 16/22 tons. IY wagons were fitted with a wheel handbrake similar to that used on IZ wagons, instead of the lever handbrake fitted to 'standard' wagons.

Model illustrated has been fitted with handbrake, shunter's steps and couplers (not included).
