Better Bogies

Success at the second attempt with the bogies for the DZ wagon kit.

This is the second test etch from Narrow Planet with one of the bogies folded up at the top of the shot.

As you can see they are a basic fold-up design which require 2mm flanged pin point bearings to be inserted plus wheelsets - we use Parkside Dundas 6.2mm disc ones - and couplings to complete them.

Many thanks to Steve at Narrow Planet for his patience in putting up with my rather vague specifications for these parts and the multiple re-designs it has required.

They are now good to go and the first batch of 30 should be with me any day now and the kits can be dispatched.

  1. They look great, Rob.

    We had quite a few people looking interestedly and asking about the DZ and the hopper on the NP stand at ExpoNG yesterday.
