The Wasserwagen was designed to go with the Brigadelok which had rather small tanks. There were two versions, this one being the most common. They were often to be found in sidings acting a a water bowser and found some interesting uses after the war.
The kit has an etched chassis and bogies with lost wax brass castings for springs, axleboxes, dome, fillers and brake mechanisms. The seats are strip wood on etched formers. The body and toolbox are resin castings and need very little fettling before use.
Feldbahn couplings are available in the bits n bobs section and other types will fit easily.
For 12 - 16.5mm gauge £45.00
All Wasserwagen sold after 1-7-2017 will have bodies that are not 100%. Once the remaining kits are sold, the Wasserwagen will be discontinued for now.
The Brigadewagen was the German all purpose wagon. With it's removable sides and ends it was many wagons in one.
The kit has etched bogies and underframe with lost wax brass castings for the springs, axleboxes, stake pockets and end guard rails. The body is a resin casting that can be cut up if required to represent other versions of the wagon.
Feldbahn couplings are available in the Parts and Accessories section and other types will fit easily.
For 12 - 16.5mm gauge £45.00
For gauges smaller than 14mm, some filing will be required to make clearance for the wheels.
Pike Bros End Tipping and Runner wagons
Based on the Pike Brothers Tramway wagons, the body and chassis of the tipper are etched brass with lime wood sections for the upper timbers. The body can be cut down or added to before assembly to make wagons that differ from each other. The tipping end of the sides are square as supplied, but the example shown has had the corners cut off. Coupling hooks are included for chain couplings but other coupling will be down to you to sort out.
Due to the overhang, they will only couple one way round. If the loco is at the non tipping end, this is not a problem. If at the tipping end, either a long coupling bar must be used or the flat runner wagon must be used as a spacer.
The Runner was designed to go with the end tippers and of similar construction, now supplied with a one piece 3D printed body. It is longer at one end, having been extended at some time. This was probably to get it away from falling debris from the first tipper.
In use, the tippers always faced the same way, towards the tipping point with the runner permanently attached to the rear of the loco. When hauling wagons to the tip. the flat wagon acted as a spacer, when returning it just stayed coupled to the rear of the loco, it was also somewhere handy to put tools, the driver's bike and anyone needing a lift.
