Parkside Dundas O Southern Railway Banana Van Diag 1/478 Kit PS100
Parkside kits are well designed and easy to build into detailed and good running models.
The chassis is designed with sliding axleboxes, this allows for any distortion created during building to be corrected by the builders' preferred method, be that compensation, allowing the wheels to simply follow the rails under their own weight, or fixing the axleboxes in place once the wagon is set with all four wheels on the rail. Metal wheels and sprung buffers are supplied, along with hand and vacuum brake system details appropriate for the wagon.
These insulated box vans were built for banana traffic but were also used for other traffic when required, including as meat vans and as general traffic box vans.
