Product Description

On30 20ft chassis flat car (Without trucks, couplers or fittings).

Pack of 3 kits.

FREE laser cut brake wheel brake staff,rachet and pawl kit included (not sold separately)

Chassis and flat car body kit.  Laser cut mostly from premium grade laser ply.

Makes up into a really solid, reliable chassis and flat ready for trucks, couplers, additional body and/or further detailing. All parts have alignment features for easy assembly.

Kit includes steel wire for truss rods and a bending jig. The cross members have features to hold the wire in place, and designed-in anchor points. Turnbuckles and other fittings not supplied - you can buy them from the same places you get the trucks!

Solebars and end beams have holes laser cut ready for NBWs (not supplied)

Truck mounts have 2 possible positions allowing use of various trucks.

Small trucks:  Kadee HO 501, or equivalent Tichy HO archbar trucks with HO 33" wheels. (9.6mm).  Tichy archbar trucks fitted with 10.5mm wheels can also be used with alternative supplied mounting in the kit.

Larger trucks: Bachmann, San Juan trucks. the chassis can has the space to take quite large wheels and still hold a reasonable tight radius.

Coupler mount designed for Kadee HO 148 "whisker" couplers. Can also use older No5 couplers with simple modification.

The chassis frame design leaves a lot of space for adding weight. Thats usually the biggest problem with empty flat cars making them run badly without loads. The KHM design has a large pocket 3.8mm deep within the subframe . My prototypes are 111g (4oz) using lead sheet.  weights not supplied in the kit.

BRITS!  you can buy the trucks, 148 couplers, turnbuckles, NBWs, brake wheels, stake posts (if wanted) from Paul Martin at EDM Models (NG Trains) and also from the 7mm NG Association Sales.  The kit comes with a free KHM laser cut brake wheel pack for the cars
