Offering something different for N Gauge modellers, this truck is designed to Brunel’s broad gauge as used on the original Great Western Railway. Used with other broad gauge items available – notably axles for easy conversion and ready-to-use dual-gauge sleepers for track, this is a fully operational model complete with locating points for broad and standard-gauge couplings.
Necessary to Complete:
Wheels – Peco spoked wheels cut in two work ideally (NOTE the axlebox holes may need slight countersinking internally with a drill to provide a perfect fit)
Axles – either those available to slot Peco wheelsets onto or an equivalent to ensure the correct 14mm gauge (eg 12.5mm lengths of cotton wool bud shaft)
Couplings (the method used is at the builder's discretion)
Optional additional details to scratchbuild (at the builder's discretion):
