Now available are our first kits for South African Narrow or Welsh Highland Railway freight stock

These kits are produced in batches. When stocks run low we start on a new batch but because of lead times to get parts made there can sometimes be a gap in availability

Options of angled or flat end, with Tee and U shaped stanchions included.

The kit is mainly etched nickel silver with detail castings and is available with either diamond frame or Betterndorf bogies

Bachmann 00 Passenger Coach wheels are supplied with the bogies. These provide smooth running wheels of the right diameter for new wheels. They are a tight press fit and can be regauged for 14mm gauge

The standard kit contains all the parts to make the doors in etched metal and castings making it a very detailed kit. However, we reckon that if you want to build a rake of them you'll end up needing therapy. We sent a set to Phil at Port Wynnstay for a swim in moulding rubber and now also include these in the kit.

I reckon you'll want to build one in metal for the satisfaction but put resin ones on the rest of your fleet!  The only thing is the resin ones are very thin making them a bit fragile
