Made from wood, this freelance four wheeled parcel van is a sturdy design which looks perfect behind a 16mm loco.
The van body is 138mm high, not including the few millimetres for the ventilator, and 101mm wide in the body, 113mm including the steps. This version is 188mm long in the body, 220mm including couplings (the same as the 2 compartment coach).
Available as either a kit or as a finished model.
Kit: Not too hard to make (but it’s not really a beginner’s kit), with easy to follow illustrated instructions.
32mm / 45mm regaugeable.
Pre-Made: Available in either maroon or green (both have cream panels).
The colours of every coach exactly matches the other coaches in the range (eg the satin finish maroon is identical to all the other coaches and parcel van).
Couplings are fitted in the finished version, but are not included in the kit due to the widevariety in use. Minimum radius is 2’6”.
Supplied as 32mm or 45mm gauge, the wheels can easily be re-gauged to your railway.
The 2, 3 and 4 Compartment Coaches are of very similar design, intended to make a uniformed train.
