Product Description
This is an N scale model of the RKLX wagons used on broad gauge steel trains between Melbourne and Hastings. They carry the loaded coil containers (aka butter boxes) and scrap bins from the Western Port Steel Works to the Melbourne Steel Yard on Footscray Rd, West Melbourne where they are transferred to standard gauge. Some of the coils are then unloaded in the Melbourne Yard for local distribution by truck with the remainder transported for wider distribution in Australia. The scrap bins carry the off cuts from the manufacturing at Hastings to the Port Kembla steel works for recycling in the steel furnace.

Whilst this is a simple model lacking detail, it is inexpensive so you can build a train at lower cost. Use White Strong and Flexible plastic.  The model is designed to use with Microtrains 1030 trucks (not included).  These have truck mounted couplers so all you need to do is paint, attach the trucks and run.

VQOF wagons are used elsewhere. RKLX and VQOF wagons are cut down from ELX wagons  

Model updated Sep 2015 : stronger sprue holding the wagons together during manufacture and shipping.
