Product Description
GW 8' American Bogie with central boss

00 Gauge, 1:76, 4mm/Foot

This type of bogie was used by the GWR on various coaches from the Churchward era. I developed this print as a replacement for some white metal versions fitted to a Toplight  slip coach of unknown origen that I had obtained from eBay, but could be used on other coaches.

This print has been designed to use HORNBY R8263 14.1mm or Bachmann 36-033 14mm Coach Disc Wheels and has NEM pockets*. 

On some prints I have found that the NEM socket is a very tight fit so I would recommend that these are cleaned out with a fine sharp object (pin) to ensure there is no dust from the manufacturing process.  In addition, you may need to flex the sides a little when fitting the wheels to ensure smooth running. This is particularly true for Bachmann wheels.


* This product was designed for use with the Hornby R8268 and R8276, large and medium width couplings and will also work with the R8219 Hornby NEM coupling.  However it will not work with the R8220 Hornby NEM pocket close. This has not been tested using Kadee or any other type of coupling.
