Description

This model is based on a Talyllyn three plank wagon used by the Talyllyn railway in mid-wales, for the conveyance of general merchandise, coal, timber, fish and beer. The wagons were rebuilds of some of the railway’s 2 bar slate wagons and so were rather small. It was thought that they were un-braked, but while searching on the internet the designer found an old photo of a “3 planker” with brakes so brake gear has been included with the model for you to decide!

3D printed riveted body corner plates

These are produced by “Selective Laser Sintering” in an engineering grade nylon and many customers have assumed that they’re castings rather than 3D printed. The parts come pre-coloured in “charcoal black” and provide an attractive and rugged addition to the model.

Brake gear

This kit features non-working SLS nylon brake lever, brake shoes and lever arms.

Laser cut body parts

The body parts are cut from a poplar plywood which is easy to glue and paint. Sheet edges and rivet heads are engraved on the wagon floor (styrene sheet) so the wagon looks good even if you choose not to add a suitable wagon load.

Choice of nylon couplers

A choice of couplings is included in this kit. You can either assemble the wagon with side “dumb buffers” and a central hook for a 3 link chain or if you prefer a centre buffer (for greater compatibility with the rest of your stock) , a pair of  Penrhyn style wagon buffers are also included.

Now available in 45mm gauge as well.
