Description

The humble slate wagon was an obvious choice to accompany the Quarry Hunslet locomotives as part of Bachmann Narrow Gauge’s NG7 launch range, however we’ve gone a step further and modelled not only the basket wagons used to transport finished slates, but the flat beds and coal wagons too. Based on those wagons used at Dinorwic Quarry in North Wales, once the second largest slate quarry in the world, these wagons worked on a vast narrow gauge railway network which was employed to move materials around the site. Flat bed wagons were used to transport slabs of slate from the rock face to dressing and finishing buildings and could also be employed to move other large, bulky items around the quarry.

These new Bachmann Narrow Gauge NG7 models feature a diecast chassis, fitted with authentic curved-spoke wheels and incorporating NEM coupling pockets, with a choice of two couplings – a simple hook and loop to offer discreet coupling within a train formation and our new chopper couplings to couple to locomotives equipped with the same. Fitted to the chassis is an injection moulded wagon deck complete with engraved plank detail.
