To me it seems that the availability of simple standard items such as
"U" steel truckframes, 4 holed wheels in different sizes, simple
"Koppel style" axleboxes, buffers etc. would help a lot when scratch
building typical industrial ng stock in 1:32 scale. For PW work
steel sleepers and scale fishplates would be nice.. The things you
find in Koppel or Decauville catalogs..
BTW the scale link tippers are very nice.
Mind you that standard british (tipper)trucks and other typical ng
items can be very different from the stuff used overhere in
Holland, France, Germany etc.. For example the (excelent) 0 14 Roy
Link tippers are real british and where -to my knowledge- never
I would buy any type O&K dieselloco, a round bonnet RUSTON (shipped
to Europe after WW2) or a DIEMA diesel. Wooden tipper wagons were
very much in use here, would make a great kit. I would love an
O&K or Henschell 50 HP contractors steamloco...even only a body kit
would be great..Complexx makes very nice DEUTZ dieselloco's and
trucks but i can't pay them...
There are kits for the english market but not much (payable) typical
industrial ng stuff for us overhere on the european mainland, please
correct me if i'm wrong. I like the WW1 locos and stock very much
though and this is great stuff when modeling a French ng railway
I'm thinking of building a WW1 diorama, situated in France for our
Unlike France and England, in Holland or Germany these type of locos
and wagons were not (or in any case very rarely) used for industrial
work after WW1.
