    Bogie Bolster 'E' Announcement

    At The O Gauge Guild exhibition in Telford today We exhibited the 1st Engineering prototypes (EPs) of our new 7mm scale model of the Bogie Bolster 'E'

    Based on diagram 1/479 Tow 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
    • High detail, multi-component bogie construction with metal coil springs
    • Accurate chassis design and underframe detail
    • Sprung buffers
    • Working 'instanter' coupling
    • Re-positionable, multi-component bolsters with correct relief
    • Re-positionable stanchions with metal tie-down loops
    • 2-part metal tie-down loops along chassis side
    • Profiled metal wheels
    Initially we shall be releasing the following versions:
