Narrow gauge tanker wagons
« on: June 30, 2013, 03:06:27 PM »
I have added some narrow gauge tanker wagons, as there were not previously any in the pakset. These might be useful for Standard, too. Images:

Thanks! - the large ones do look rather big for narrow gauge though?

Modern narrow gauge vehicles can be quite long - on the WHR for example some coaches are up to 13m long (nearly 3/4 the length of a MK1 BR coach). Since there's no modern goods transport by narrow gauge in the UK a bit of imagination is required to think of how waggons might have similarly developed.

I have based my "modern" narrow gauge vehicles on South African practice on the basis that South African wagons and locomotives are used on the WHR. They are, I think, in scale with things like the Funkey diesel locomotive of that era.

Greenling -  please stop pestering for things to be updated to standard. I do not always have the time to keep up with all the updates and it is not helpful for you to post messages like this.
