Over the coming months we are looking to have more exclusive and special edition wagons based on merchants local to us in the SW London / Croydon area.
We would welcome any ideas or information on companies that may have had private liveried wagons in this area.

Listed in Kelly's Surrey directories 1895 & 1899 as George Vallis, Colliery Agent of Carshalton.
Listed in Kelly's of 1933 as Vallis W.A. Carshalton Surrey. Not listed among Coal Merchants in the 1938 Colliery Year Book. Most coal probably came from the East Midlands.

Murrell Wagon New.JPG

The Hornby R.6031 was a limited run, 7-plank wagon, exclusive model to Janes Trains. We decided for a first model, we would like a wagon from a company local to us in Tooting. Unfortunately, we could not find any at that time, so we opted for the livery of a nearby company, called 'C.Murrell & Sons', who were Coal Merchants, based in nearby Wimbledon. Only 500 examples of this model were made for us by Hornby Hobbies. Each one came with its own unique numbered certificate and they were only available from Janes Trains.
