Does anybody have the instruction sheet for this kit ?

Would be much obliged - if I could get hold of a copy :D

Cheers

Sorry, but no instructions. However, I built one and if I recall correctly, there is nothing unusual about the kit. Builds just like a standard box van minus the roof. What's the issue for which you need instruction sheet?

I don't have the instructions and I can't find it online, but I've found something that might be useful from the manufacturer :D

To be honest, if you study the parts carefully, it’s a straightforward build. I never understood why Coopercraft produced this particular kit though: they were relatively few in number and I’d have thought that more more useful wagons could have been chosen, a Mica perhaps, a small Toad or a tube wagon.

I guess they were trying to squeeze as much use as they could out of common parts.

Sorry for the tardy reply - been one of those weeks :shock: :roll:

The background is I have acquired a built wagon - but the underframe is a bit of a mystery - it seems like it is missing on one side.

One side - has full brake gear - rigging, v-hanger and brake shoes, whilst the other side just has a v-hanger.

This may be entirely correct - and showing my ignorance of pre-1923 GW standardisation or lack of it! :lol:
