Upon being faced with the task of detailing more Lima PCA wagons for Calcutta Sidings, instead of fiddling around with small bits of plasticard and U channel this 3D print was developed.
The Brake Support Bracket is designed to convert the Lima PCA from a one disc brake per axle wagon to the two disc brake per axle wagon as design code PC009E, number range, 10700 – 10837 and 10850 – 10942.

Please note that the demonstration model still retains the original Lima suspension units and wheels for the moment. The deficiencies of these can be seen when compared to the prototype images.
Although the instructions for this item refer to the Lima PCA, the Hornby PCA is very similar and this detailing part can be used to detail that model as well.
