This is a set of wooden kits designed to run on both 32mm and 45mm gauge track. It is based on the 1950s built 14 Ton all steel wagons built for the Bowaters Paper Company. Some of these wagons were converted into passenger coaches at both Sittingbourne (such as this one) and at Whipsnade Zoo. This set of kits is for the Battery Loco 'The Tank' and former Staff Coaches Number 641, 657 and 659. This set does not include battery or Radio control equipment.
Comes complete with Bogies in the gauge of your choice from Houstoun Gate Locomotive Works/PDF Models and Accucraft Chopper Couplings. The kit is also available without these items. The multipack is now available with the new Bowaters Couplings from SLR Models as an optional extra.
