Cambrian C6 OO Gauge SR 12t 8 Plank Open Wagon Kit
PLEASE REVIEW THE PHOTOGRAPHS AS WELL, ACCESSORIES/BOXES ETC WILL BE SHOWN IF THEY ARE INCLUDED.
WORKING ORDER: N/A
COSMETIC CONDITION: New. Assembly required. Couplings, wheels, bearings, paint, glue and transfers required to complete this kit.A numerous type, our kit is for the 9' wheelbase unfitted design (D1379), with "Freighter" double-sided brakes. These were also used as engineers wagons – many were converted to carry cable drums for electrification work between 1950-70. However, after an accident in which an unfastened top door struck a passenger train, their use for spoil was banned.
NOTE: the kit represents an Ashford-built wagon. This works (unlike Eastleigh) did not bevel the top edge of the body sheeting (planks). When built and painted, the body sides were fairly smooth, with little evidence of plank edges until shrinkage took place.
See Kit C96 for 10ft. wheelbase version.
BOXED: Packeted, excellent.
