Product Description
GW 9' American Bogie LIMA Fit.

00 Gauge, 1:76, 4mm/Foot

This is a replacement for the original bogies, fitted to the Lima Siphon G, which were based on the British Railways Mk 1 coach bogie and therefore incorrect.

This bogie represents the Great Western Churchward “American” type which some of the inside framed Siphon G were fitted (Lot 1396)

Unlike the original bogies, these are fitted with NEM coupling pockets to allow customers a wide choice of couplings.*

This print has been designed to use HORNBY R8098 12.5 mm disc wheels rather than the 14mm wheels used on my other American bogies to prevent the flanges rubbing on the underside of the wagon body. For those who prefer to use brass bearings, an alternative is available elsewhere on this site.

On some prints I have found that the NEM socket is a very tight fit so I would recommend that they are cleaned out with a fine sharp object (pin) to ensure there is no dust from the manufacturing process. In addition, you may need to flex the sides a little when fitting the wheels to ensure smooth running. This is particularly true for Bachmann wheels.

* This product was designed for use with the Hornby R8268 and R8276, large and medium width couplings and will also work with the R8219 Hornby NEM coupling.  However it will not work with the R8220 Hornby NEM pocket close. This bogie has not been tested using Kadee or any other type of coupling.



1 Bogie frame print. These are sold singly to allow customers to by an individual bogie should they require replacements.
