HO 1/87 Conveyor Unloader - Rail Hoppers/Road tank 3d printed My conveyer/unloader model on Andrew Browne's layout. Note he has cut & repositioned the conveyer belt into an upright position, so he can switch cars in the siding without moving the unloader each time. Both trailers are my 3D designs too. The one at the crossing is a 1636 & the one in the yard is a 1625V.

About this Product

A conveyer Unloader for rail yards or depots where hopper cars can gravity unload to road tankers. This is based on a prototypte (see photo) and the conveyer should fit under most HO Hopper cars. I've made the wheels rotatable, as per the prototype and they could be set to different heights with a little adhesive (they are supplied on sprues and can be snipped off and fitted to the chassis). The discharge tube should fit over my bulk trailer models, but could be extended with a plastic, or paper-made tube. The model could be used in reverse, to unload a road trailer and load a rail hopper. Please note, the images are from my 3D CAD model and not the actual printed model. I'd be pleased to receive photos from any customer who has received their Conveyer model.
