15ft wheelbase, Bolster Wagon.

Unpainted plastic model kit easy to assemble.

One-piece body moulding, chassis, wheels and couplings.

One simple way to add variety to your goods wagon fleet is to build some from the many kits on offer. To do so will also add some fun and satisfaction into to your modelling activities. This kit from Peco builds into a 15ft wheelbase bolster wagon. The wagon depicted here has 2 bolsters. A bolster is a block of timber that is laid across the wagon and supports the load. A bolster usually had a vertical post at each end in order to restrain the load from moving sideways. On wagons with a single bolster, the bolster would be able to swivel, so that 2 or more such wagons could be used together to transport a longer load, for example, logs. In common with the other Peco N gauge wagon kits, everything is included except glue, paint and transfers. The body is one-piece, as is the chassis block, making for quick assembly for which instructions are included. A suitable glue is DLAD-24 Plastic Magic. For paint choose either BR bauxite (RM1235 spray can, RM2235 for brush application), BR early freight grey (RM1322 spray can, RM2322 for brush application), or one of the many authentic rail colours from Railmatch to suit your chosen prototype. Finish off with transfers from the range by Woodland Scenics.
