Description

Royal Navy Armaments Depots (RNAD) were strategic sites located around the UK for the storage and supply of armaments to the Royal Navy and other British and Commonwealth Armed Forces. Usually comprising several underground ‘magazines’, they were usually rail served by the national network and many had internal narrow gauge railway systems in order to aid movements between the standard gauge facility, magazines and workshops. The railways were equipped with their own fleets of locomotives and rolling stock designed specifically for the task in hand. Although some of the railways operated as recently as the early-21st century, as closures occurred stock became redundant however a significant number of items have subsequently entered preservation gaining a new lease of life. This Van features roof hatches allowing large munitions to be loaded directly into the van from above via a crane and our model is finished in RNAD Grey, depicting a wagon in use at an RNAD site.
