Please note: This set does not contain any loading bridges, order them separately. Tank car loading rack in N Scale. This platform is long enough for 2 tank cars on each side. The walkway is 30mm above ground level. The platform has stairs on both sides, pipes below the platform to connect hoses or other loading systems on top of the platform and a cable tray that goes just below the top truss.
Almost no assembly required! The platform, railings and pipes were all designed to be very thin and are all part of the main structure (i.e. they need each other for maximum strength). That's supposed to make it as realistic as possible, but it also means you have to handle this model with respect. Normal handling is no problem, just don't drop it and don't use a vice or strong clamps etc. The cable tray is printed separate from the top the truss, but attached with 2 little hooks. It slides in and out to make painting easier. All other parts can easily be painted.
This platform is designed to accomodate the loading bridges found in my Loading/Unloading section, you need either 2 or 4 bridges depending on wether this rack stands next to one or between 2 tracks.
If you would like to simulate a loading system, please have a look at my fuel cranes for this platform.
