Rolling Stock Kits

Ffestiniog Railway '3-Ton Slate Waggons

Three distinct versions of these familiar, long-lived waggons are available covering ‘Type 1 - Unbraked', ‘Type 3 - Braked' and 'Type 3 -Unbraked'.

These laser cut kits are available in MDF or Plywood and feature proven hidden slot and tab construction. They come complete with Binnie Engineering wheels, axles and coupling hooks, HGLW oil filled bronze bearings. Those kits marked as 'Braked' are supplied with Dummy / Non Working representations of the Brake Gear'. The kits are supplied with couplings designed as part of the kit’s construction, and parts are supplied to provide both a definitive scale outline for ‘hooks under the buffers’ or an option to couple over the top in the more usual 16mm scale fashion. Despite looking quite delicate, the side and end walls are surprisingly robust once fully constructed; whilst they have a degree of flex, they are not brittle and can easily stand ‘respectful’ (as opposed to careful) handling. The chassis is fully robust.

These vehicles are by their nature very light in weight when unladen, but there is plenty of room either under the chassis, or indeed as a modelled load to provide additional ballast to aid running.

To maintain a scale outline, these kits are 32mm gauge only.
(45mm gauge may be possible with certain compromises; if you would be interested please get in touch)
