Peco GR-320 2t Slate Wagon Set (Unbraked/Unbraked/Unbraked)
|Scale / Type:||OO9 Scale|
The 2-ton capacity iron slate waggon depicted by our model is one of the most numerous types, with hundreds built and many surviving. As these waggons tend to run in long rakes, the models have semi-permanent close-couplings fitted in their NEM pockets. These can be pulled out with fine nosed pliers and replaced with conventional OO-9 hoop-and-loop couplings (supplied) at each end of the rake. We plan to make the close couplers available as a separate item in due course. Roughly one in five waggons was fitted with brakes. These were spread throughout the train and turned so the brake handles were all on the same side of the train, pointing towards Porthmadog on the Ffestiniog Railway. These waggons are offered as selection of three unbraked vehicles. Each waggon carries its own specific markings and running number. The sets are made up with a random selection of running numbers. Each waggon is fitted with a removable slate load, which is conveniently hollow, thus giving the modeller the added option of including some further weight if required.
