SAR NG-V2 Brake Van ‘Re-built Condition’ Kit

This 16mm scale kit represents the rebuilt ‘V-2 Brake Van’, NG 1050, which was rebuilt with full matchboard sides and is today preserved at Humewood Road as part of the Apple Express formation. Although numbered as goods stock, it has been available for use as a passenger carrying vehicle, with seating for nine.

The kit is available in MDF or Plywood depending on your preference (see pricing below) and utilises hidden slot and tab construction as an aid to easy and accurate construction. As per all of my kits, it features individual glazing pieces and droplight details. This kit features a fully fitted interior.

Although prototypical for SAR, this short bogie vehicle would fit right in on all but the very smallest 16mm scale railways and its loading gauge would complement many of the medium and larger sized generic live-steam locomotives currently on the market.

Most of the vehicles represented in the range were built in significant quantities. As such no lettering or numbering is provided as it would be impractical to include so many numbering options. However, ‘Endon Valley Decals’ produce appropriate decals and these can be customised to suit your requirements.
