VIDEO: Dapol 'Turbot'
wagons for 'O'
Dapol's all-new model of the 'Turbot' spoil and ballast wagon arrived for 'O' gauge during August. In the latest issue we take a closer look at these enticing new modern image additions while this video showcases the wagons in action on our test track.
'O' GAUGE modern image is benefitting from the arrival of Dapol's new 7mm scale model of the BR 'Turbot' spoil and ballast wagons. These engineering vehicles were rebuilt from the Bogie Bolster E fleet during the 1980s and the last were withdrawn from service in the early 2000s.
Dapol's new 'O' gauge model features a fully detailed chassis, sprung buffers, working instanter couplings, turned metal wheels and the option to remove the dropside doors.
For this video feature we set up a short rake of 'Turbots' behind a 'Dutch' liveried Class 33/0 from the Heljan stable to showcase the wagons in action on our test track.
