7mm Narrow Gauge O-16.5

WAGONS

Open Wagon Body - 2 Plank (NG01)
(discount available for multiple purchases)

This one piece cast resin wagon body has been produced from my own master and mould. It represents a typical design of small two plank open wagon with a central drop down door. The model features full plank detail and iron work including bolt and rivet heads, plus iron corner plates.

 

Supplied in white resin ready for painting and additional detailing. An ideal project to use up that old chassis that has been sitting in the spares box for years!

 

The photographs show the white body that you will receive plus some examples of how the body can be incorporated into different designs of finished vehicles. The grey dumb buffered wagon representing a design from the late 1800s, the brown wagon a later design with steel end stanchions added from strip styrene. 

Body dimensions approx. 68mm x 39mm x 12.5mm (L x W x H)

Flat Wagon Kit (NG02)
(discount available for multiple purchases)

This detailed wagon represents a typical design of small flat bed wagon with a timber deck, iron side plates and lashing hoops for securing loads. The model features full plank detail including splits and dents from a hard working life. Flat wagons were versatile unsung workhorses of the wagon fleet, capable of carrying a wide range of different shaped loads that could simply be set down on the deck and secured with ropes.

 

Kit comprises a robust one piece cast chassis unit, deck, head stocks, dummy axle boxes and brake gear. Bearings fit easily into the chassis unit for smooth and reliable free running.

 

Supplied in white resin ready for assembly and painting. Just requires couplings, 2mm brass pinpoint bearings and wheels to complete (26mm axles). I recommend using either 10mm or 12mm diameter wheel sets.

 

Body dimensions approx. 67mm x 37mm (L x W).

Timber Quarry Tub Wagon Kit (NG21)
(discount may be available for multiple purchases)

  

The wooden tub wagon represents one of the earliest forms of industrial rail vehicle. Favoured by many quarry and mine owners owing to their light weight, cheap construction costs and easy maintenance, many continued to be used well after the introduction of iron and steel wagons. These wagons endured a very hard life and it was common to see them dented and scarred as a result of their labours. The sample model has been finished to depict a typical tired and work-beaten vehicle.

 

Approximate dimensions: length 54mm, width 37mm, height ARL 32mm.

 

The kit comprises a cast resin body and separate cast chassis unit with overlays for the pedestal bearings. Supplied with brass pinpoint bearings, the kit requires wheels (26mm pinpoint axles) and couplings to complete.

Iron Quarry Tub Wagon Kit (NG22)
(discount may be available for multiple purchases)

  

The tub wagon was once synonymous with quarrying and mining and the main rolling stock of many an industrial narrow-gauge system. Often moved by hand over temporary track to the working face for loading, then marshalled into rakes ready to be hauled away by the quarry loco to the crusher or for loading into standard gauge wagons at the interchange sidings. This freelance design of iron tub wagon was inspired by similar vehicles used in ironstone mining operations in North Oxfordshire up to the 1930s.

 

Approximate dimensions: length 52mm, width 31mm, height ARL 32mm.

 

The kit comprises a cast resin body and separate cast chassis unit with overlays for the pedestal bearings. Supplied with brass pinpoint bearings, the kit requires wheels (26mm pinpoint axles) and couplings to complete.

Cattle Wagon Body Kit (NG19)

  

A useful vehicle for tail traffic traffic tacked on the morning passenger service or run as a full rake on market days.

These vans are a freelance design inspired by features found on prototype examples. The highly detailed sides and ends feature planking and bolt detail together with the characteristic outside framing so typical of late Victorian goods vehicle design. The pack includes two side castings featuring a pair of hinged doors with lower ramp flap. A pair of plain boarded ends, styrene rod for the upper rails, a plain styrene floor and a preformed styrene roof section. 

 

The parts glue together easily with superglue enabling the rapid construction of the body shell. The builder is only required to source a suitable chassis which could be a OO gauge wagon chassis for O-16.5, or an etched brass example for those preferring compensation or modelling in a narrower gauge such as 14mm.

 

The finished body dimensions are approx. 92mm x 42mm.

 

The photographs show the parts you will receive together with a test build in white primer and a part painted sample in grey livery to illustrate what a final vehicle could look like. (Please note the roof is only loosely positioned in the photos to allow for future detailing when time allows!)

O-16.5 Wagon Chassis Kit (NG20)
(wheels NOT included - discount available for multiple purchases) 

This chassis kit is suitable for use with the 2 plank open wagon body (see separate listing) or as the basis of a scratch building project. This kit has been designed to 7mm scale proportions, avoiding the problems of using 4mm OO gauge wagon chassis with undersized components.

 

Simple to assemble, the kit comprises a robust one piece cast chassis unit, head stocks, dummy axle boxes and brake gear. The brass bearings provided fit easily into the chassis unit for smooth and reliable free running. Use with the headstocks fitted for open wagons, or without the headstocks for vans or smaller vehicles.

 

Supplied in white resin ready for assembly and painting. Just requires couplings and wheels to complete (26mm axles). Suitable for wheels up to 12mm diameter, the made up sample in the photos is fitted with 10.5mm Kadee wheels for illustration (the wheels are not part of this sale)

 

The photographs show the parts that you will receive plus some examples of a test build in white.

 

Dimensions approx. with headstocks 68mm x 37mm (L x W), without headstocks 63mm x 32mm. Wheel base 35mm.
