3D printed in matte translucent plastic that showcases fine and intricate details.
Axleboxes used by the SECR for wagons: pack of 24. These axleboxes are suitable for models of many early-SECR wagons with some notable exceptions.
Wagons built by the SER in the 1860s and earlier had a visibly-different kind of grease axlebox at the time of building.
Many wagons built by the SER in the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s used the same D-type axlebox but with different embossed lettering on the front: see my separate product "SER D-type axlebox".
Vacuum-braked wagons and NPCS had a different pattern of oil axleboxes, for which castings are available from Branchlines.
Any wagon built after Mr. Maunsell took over as CME is unlikely to have had this kind of axlebox.
The axleboxes are modelled without springs, to be used with springs salvaged from plastic kits or cast springs (as sold by Dart Castings in the MJT range), in order to reduce the overall cost of the model wagons. If you need axleboxes printed with their springs, please contact me.
The shape and dimensions of the box were inferred from photographs and 4mm-scale drawings in An illustrated History of Southern Wagons vol. 3, by Bixley et al. The dimensions are not, therefore, as exact as could be obtained from an original drawing of the SER. I would be happy to revise the CAD model if sent better information.
