MOD Ballast Wagon Kit
This ballast wagon has been inspired by the well-known MoD wagons used extensively on military railways and therefore not seen by the general public during their working lives. Unlike much narrow gauge rolling stock, they were not sold off when no longer required but were burned on site because they might have been impregnated with explosives! Some examples have avoided this fiery fate and can be seen on a number of preserved railways throughout the UK.In real life these wagons ran on 2’ 6” gauge track and were of modest dimensions. We have sized our kits to look ‘right’ with a typical Roundhouse, Cheddar or Accucraft loco making the range more accessible to the mainstream garden railway enthusiast. As with all our rolling stock range, these kits are complete with steel wheels (32 or 45 gauge), axles, axleboxes, buffers and detailing castings. The bodies are simply constructed from pre-cut and planked wood; you require no special tools and only need to supply glue and paint. Dimensions: Length 200mm, width 105mm, height 85mm.
