Following on from our weekend announcement of the O Gauge Turbot and Bogie Bolster 'E' We are announcing the OO gauge version of the Bogie Bolster 'E' which will join our previously announced OO Gauge Turbot. As with the O gauge models and the Turbot the Bogie Bolster 'E' is in an advanced stage of development with livery samples and artwork currently being finalised.

Based on diagram 1/479 Two Lots were built in Ashford by BR during 1961 - 1962. A Total of 1200 wagons.
Constructed to a modern design, on David & Lloyd bogies, this wagon was the shortest of the bogie bolster at just over 32 feet in length. The reasoning behind equipping such a short vehicle with bogies was that a higher load could be carried due the increased axle count. Though originally constructed as part of BRs regular 'pool' of commercial wagons, they quickly found favour with the engineers department as well as many other uses including conversions to steel coil carriers and continuous welded rail transportation amongst other uses.

Our new model features include:
  • Pinpoint axles
  • Highly detailed bogies
  • Die-cast chassis
  • Prototype chassis design
  • Finely detailed underframe
  • Sprung buffers
  • Working 'instanter' coupling
  • Removable NEM pocket
  • Re-positionable, multi-component bolsters with correct relief (Multi-part construction)
  • Re-positionable stanchions with separate metal tie-down loops
  • Profiled metal wheels
