Product Description

On30 Ore car kits  (pack of 3)

Only £6.50 per car. Not available separately.

10.5mm wheelsets (HO 36") and Kadee 148 couplers not included

KHM "simple" link and pin couplers supplied to make close-coupled rake of cars.

These simple mining cars are freelance, with a really cool backwoods feel.

8ft 4 wheel chassis designed for 10.5mm wheels (36" HO wheelsets are not supplied) - these are the size in Bachmans 18ft cars, also Kadee, Tichy, Atlas and others )

Wheelsets run in brass "top hat" pin point bearings (supplied). Once weighted, this car is a very smooth running wee beastie!

laser cut rigid chassis made from 1.6mm premium ply. All parts have alignment features for easy assembly.

The coupler pockets are set up for centre set, medium length Kadee (148 whisker couplings or old number 5s).

KHM link and pin couplers (supplied) will fit using the same hole as the Kadees to give a close coupled rake. Only use Kadees at the end cars to shunt the whole rake (at least thats what i do!)

The chassis frame design leaves a lot of space for adding WEIGHT. My prototypes are 1.2oz with small lead weights in the chassis. Low down weight for great running with no need to apply weight in the load.  Weights not supplied in the kit - that would push up shipping a lot.

Body work is made from strong 1mm premium laser ply that is "tabbed" together. the tabs are hidden by the corner strapping

Sides are 3 scale 6" planks fixed with stakes  No bolt detail on the stakes other than holes, but those are visually effective.

Brake wheel, staff with rachet and pawl are included in the kit. (not yet in photos - I have to paint protos first!)

They come in packs of 3...... 6 cars and a caboose behind your favorite Critter would make a nice mine train !
