Super Nellie Coach/Waggon Chassis

By m1ker, Nov 14 2016 07:24PM

Yesterday I added a coach/waggon chassis to the website to run behind Super Nellie, this will give customers something to build on to run with the loco, as soon as the 'Festival' style coach body is finished - and I am working on it - it will be available. I am sure that it won't take a huge amount of imagination to come up with alsorts of bodies for the chassis; I have in mind a four poster bed and a testor bed for starters.


The chassis has my own wheels which have a profile similar to the Bachmann 'G' scale Thomas range diecast wheels, the wheels are cast in a black, tough, high impact resin impregnated with iron powder and the 4mm dia. axles run in ball races set into each axle box; all this is included in the kit.


One problem that the bearings have caused is that the chassis will not stay put on the slightest incline, so an effective releaseable brake has been designed and comes as standard.


The wheels and axles will also be available as a separate item and it is intended to offer a Gauge 3 axle option as well.
