The model is a highly accurate representation of the bogies underneath the Supersaloon/barn coaches on the Ffestiniog railway.
One Piece Mainframe
Seperate individually mounted axleboxes
"Drag Links" To limit movement of suspension
Requires other parts to complete bogie (See Below) for details and links
Shown is the PLA version that I have tested it with. The made up one is one I have printed at home this has used slaters journals and cut down L&B accucraft wheelsets.
I have offered them up on here despite the price. I do produuce these on my own printer in PLA and can do it a lot cheaper than what's listed here. Look out for my ones in the UK garden railway press & FB trading sites. Alternatively I will be on the modular layout at the Peterborough AGM (though unable to sell items at the show).
