FRC07 - FR Short Slab Wagon with couplings
The FR Small slab wagons were essentially 2 ton slate wagon chassis with timber bearers bolted t the floor instead of the crate body of the slate wagons. In practice, there are detail differences which are all fully modelled here. Also fully modelled and fully functional, are the couplings.
Requires only axleboxes, timber bearers and Wheels to complete. A pack of axleboxes and bearers is available, code AC01, or you can use real timber and axleboxes AB01 which are designed to take Slater's wheels.
As this is an all plastic wagon it is quite light - you may wish to try FRB07 instead, which doe not have couplings or axlebox fixing bolts modelled, both of which can be added in bronze from my range to increase weight.
Printing in Red, Orange or Yellow is recommended as it will be less obvious should paint become worn on the couplings compared to plain white.
Updated 17-2-19 With additional rivet and axlebox detailing.
