Bogie Bolster Wagons
The moulded planks are from end to end whereas they should be across the wagon. The bogies also need changing and this is where a little bit of luck came in. I happened to buy some bogie that are made for South African Prototype Railways. The gauge is 12mm and of the five that I bought, three were ready made and two are kits.These are fairly close to the type fitted to these wagons and also saved a lot of time and money purchasing the correct ones.
I have seen CMD Models website but it is a little vague on availability, indeed another 3mm member has tried to aquire them previously.
However, back to the BB. Its just a matter of removing the original bogies and substituting the CMD ones, paint the wagon, apply transfers-from the old Woodhead sheet- varnish and apply couplings (which need to be blackened) and there we are-another addition to the wagon rosta.
