New Bogie Rolling Stock

Posted by John 24/07/2017 0 Comment(s)

Expanding our commitment to bring a wider range of rolling stock for 16mm scale garden railways in both SM32 and G45, we have launched our new bogie rolling stock range with wagons and passenger coaches. These are available as kits in either 96mm wide or 110mm wide versions to match our standard two axle range of models. They come as complete kits with axles, buffer couplings and glazing panels where there are windows.

The range starts with our 17ft6 chassis range of bogie wagons with a platform, open wagon, hopper wagon, box van and parcel van (with windows) that are complete with bogies, heavy GRS axles and plank effect panels.  The under frames have our own heavy duty wagon bogies and a copper air tank with braking detailing inside the bogies as well as a brake turn wheel. The bogie vans have large sliding doors and plank effect curved wooden roofs.

The next release will be a bogie hopper wagon with central drop doors. We will also be releasing a two axle short hopper wagon to extend our standard range.

The two new open balcony passenger coaches sit on a 21ft6 chassis with our own heavy duty coach bogies and GRS heavy metal wheel sets. The balcony has a pair of steps each side and a central door way with drop down walk through plate over the central buffer coupling. The coaches have an interior lighting bar for lights and a battery pack with switch for the under carriage.

The first coach is a four window passenger coach complete with interior seating. The second coach is a guards/parcel composite coach with three main windows and rear compartment as a parcels area with double doors each side and guards lookout windows.

Pricing

The bogie platform and open wagons start at £60. The box vans and hopper wagons are priced at £70 and the passenger coaches priced at £85. All are available in 96mm and 110mm wide versions. The ballast hopper will be priced at £70 when released.
