GWR  Macaw B  Bogie Bolster
BR Bogie Bolster C

  PROTOTYPE. These heavyweight 30 ton 48 foot long bogie bolsters were built from 1907 until early BR days. Originally intended as rail-carrying vehicles for the P.W. department, but once the usefulness of the design became apparent they were used for all manner of loads.

  Large numbers were built over this period with a number of detail differences as the design evolved. This kit represents the last design with lever brake gear that was continued by British Railways as their standard bogie bolster C.

  KIT. Construction is very straightforward except for the long bends on the solebars etc. I would recommend a simple set of bending bars for this operation.
