Bachmann Branch Line Shunters Wagon.

Postby BRPannierTank » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:32 am

My layout is going to be mostly about goods wagons and shunting with just a few passenger trains, a small Pannier tank and two coaches will depart the station then after that it will be served by a railcar and an Auto Trailer/coach.

I spotted a lovely model of a shunters wagon on the internet, well two to be precise, one by Hornby and one by Bachmann. Both looked very nice! I decided on the Bachmann version because she has 'Loco Department' on her and my lay out is a fictional one named 'Kingswood'.

I have to say that this is a very well detailed little wagon and even comes with a pack of add on extras for the finishing touch!

I have converted the coupling hooks to the type I am using on all of my goods rolling stock, did a bit of extra weathering, added the lamps, irons etc that came with her, then converted a seating passenger to look like a work man/shunter man.

Pictures show her coupled to my passenger engine (hence the position of the lamp) I have a Heljan 1363 and a Heljan 1366 for shunting duties but they are currently being weathered.

Your shunter sitting on the wagon is probably a good compromise, as I never seen a model of a shunter in the most common pose, standing on the bottom foot board, one hand holding on, the other holding a flag. One would also go well on the inset steps behind the deep buffer beam of some diesels
