Bogie Kits

Bogie kits

We currently produce five styles of coach bogies. All feature injection moulded sideframes and structural parts, brass wheel bearings and our renowned blackened steel wheelsets. The kits feature a compensating pivot allowing the bogie to follow the contours of the track whilst keeping the vehilce body upright.

Unless otherwise stated all bogies include scale 3ft 7inch diameter wheels.

The various bogie kit types are easily identified on our exhibition stand because each type has a different coloured label (simple but effective!).
