County Donegal Railway Models: NL 28 & NL29

There is an increased amount of modelling interest in the Irish lines and the Isle of Man railways. The two kits shown here have been introduced to cater for modellers of these larger narrow gauge prototypes under the name "Three Foot Models." Although mainly intended for 12mm gauge track both kits are available in either 9mm or 12mm gauge: please specify when ordering. Note that 9mm gauge has spoked wheels and 12mm gauge has solid disc wheels.

NL 28 This type of van was seen in vast numbers on the Donegal Railway and almost identical vehicles were used by other Irish three foot gauge lines. This model may also be used to represent Isle of Man vans. Complete with 9mm spoked wheels running in bearing cups. (9mm gauge) or solid disc wheels in 12mm gauge.

Couplings, Vac pipes, paint and adhesive are not included with the kits.
