This kit covers the ‘ultimate’ development of the 1/108 16 Ton steel mineral – with 8 shoe clasp brake gear, twin vac. brake cylinders and brake force changeover levers, as originally built, with side top doors. In later years these wagons were increasingly used for scrap metal traffic and survived in revenue earning service into the 1980s. Many were then transferred into departmental use.
This kit has full underframe detail with 99% of all the complex brake linkage present and is supplied with couplings and turned nickel silver oleo buffers.
