Description

This is a 3D printed Kit it comes with printed wheels decals and wire. Paint and couplers are needed to complete the model, couplers are kaydee 508.

The first batch built from 1948 (No.’s from 1 to 501), originally designated Of, was based very closely on the OB design, with pressed metal doors, the same ends, but the brake levers mounted just above the frame.

In the mid sixties a further batch of approx. 400 wagons were built specifically as OBf. These came equipped with prefabricated doors (like the final series of the OB wagons), modern ribbed end panels and a large brake wheel. These wagons were distinguished by modern roller bearings, which allowed much better running and higher speeds. Due to the roller bearing this type was the most common version seen on Victorian tracks and survived longer, right into the late 1990’s.

Most of the first series received sealed doors and became re-coded to OBf, while the numbers 300 to 500 (Approx.) were partially rebuilt to receive roller bearings but were otherwise little different to the original series.
