W H Hull & Son 0 Gauge

(Birmingham, UK)

W H Hull & Son of Birmingham, England, were model railway retailers, 1880s to 1930s, who also produced, or had produced for them, their own range of models including the four wheeled W H Hull & Son wagon illustrated below. The wagon appears to be made by Carette for Bassett-Lowke. Ernest Hull was a Bassett-Lowke shareholder.

W H Hull also produced a range of 0 gauge track before the First World War. Their Simpull track is believed to be the first commercially available 0 gauge track in the UK, and was subsequently (and promptly) absorbed into the Bassett-Lowke range.
