Product Description

On30 20ft Reefer kit with fully opening hatches

No trucks or couplers.

Chassis: Solid, laser cut rigid chassis ready for trucks, couplers, additional body and/or further detailing. All parts have alignment features for easy assembly.

Body: a strong poplar ply box covered in 1mm premium laser ply.

Roof: separate sub assembly to aid painting.


Reefer door and hinge details with jigs for assembly and placement.

ladders: enough for 4, with pre-formed rungs.  jig for alternative ladder-less rungs.

4 working roof hatch assemblies. these are built up as sub-assemblies then added to the roof.

Roof walk and supports.

Brake staff, brackets and brake wheel

0.56mm Steel wire for truss rods and a truss rod bending jig.

Truck mounts have 2 possible positions allowing use of various trucks: Kadee HO 501, Tichy HO archbar trucks, Bachmann, San Juan trucks. the chassis can has the space to take quite large wheels, still hold a reasonable tight radius and keep a hunkered down look.

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, but probably not needed with the reefer assembly on top. My prototypes are 100g without weight - in the right zone for good running.  weights not supplied in the kit

NOT INCLUDED: NBWs for end beams. stirrups (buy or make from left over ladder rungs), turnbuckles, trucks, couplers.

BRITS!  you can buy the trucks, 148 couplers, turnbuckles, NBWs, from Paul Martin at EDM Models (NG Trains) and also from the 7mm NG Association Sales.
