BR Shark Plough Brake Van - OO unpainted plastic kit

Require glue, paint, transfers, couplings, wheels (Gibson 12mm & brass bearings) to complete.

Built 1956 - 60, and based on the LMS design (BR Oyster), itself very similar to a Caledonian Railway plough van.

There are ploughs at each end to spread ballast discharged from hopper wagons, which are lowered when in use, using the large handwheels on the end platforms. Wooden blocks under the ploughs "skate" along the rail head (real ploughs can only be used on plain track). Some vans had their ploughs modified to clear the third rail for use on the Southern Region. Includes moulded coupling bar for use with Hornby/Bachmann couplings.

Alan Gibson Wheels compatible : 12mm 3-hole
