Hi All

I would like to share a few of the goodies that I picked up recently, A couple of WOAX's obtained at the 2011 Caulfield exhibition. Its about time, this model will well compliment the Barcoola wagon fleet. The kit is a one piece molding, comes with bogies, couplers, brass hand brake wheel, brass wire and decal sheet. Checking my prototype photos, it seems that the hand brake wheels are different to those in the kit. The version modeled has end doors for bulk end unloading. The decals reflect metric speeds and weights, with the small Westrail symbol. See prtotype photograph above.

Crisp casting, nice detail. interesting feature is a pads either side of the bolster at one end, to stop one of the bogies from vertical movement.

Would be a good afternoon project, a blast of reefer yellow, and suitable weathering.
