Rugby Cement Works, on thewestern outskirts of Rugby, makes cement from the local Jurassic Liaslimestone. The cement industry in Rugby dates back to the 19thCentury. In the 1990s the Rugby Cement Works was dramatically expandedand is now part of CEMEX, the world’s largest building materialssupplier and third largest cement producer in the World.
Finished in orange with "Rugby Cement" livery, this Corgi Guy Tipper features a tipping rear bed and working rear tailgate, plus realistic rubble load. Like the rest of this range, it is sized for use on OO Gauge railway layouts.
Eye-Catching Trackside model
Easily the nicest in this batch of Trackside trucks from Corgi, this should be on the list for all railway modellers and fans of big trucks who are happy with the scale. The livery is very eye-catching and the tipping mechanism and tailgate very nicely done, along with the "rubble" load, which looks most realistic and has great colouring. Detail levels are high too - a most impressive model.
