A new model for March 2014 is an FD 4-wheel louvre van. The FD vans were very common on the WAGR system, with a total of 1000 being built between 1953 and 1955. Most of the class remained in use until the 1980's. Refer to the WAGR Wagon Pages for more information on the prototype.

The model depicts the van in "as delivered" condition. Various modifications were carried out during the life of the FD vans and Marbelup Models may produced later versions if there is sufficient demand.
The photo below, from Rail Heritage WA, shows an FD van in close to original condition.
The expected price will be about $85 subject to exchange rate variations.
