Default South Australian Railways Narrow Gauge Wagon 2

Now that the Rn wagon is done I'm moving onto a new project, after much search and deliberation I have settled on making a ON series open wagon. This will lead onto a wide range of other wagons due to the number of rebuilds and common frames / components utilised throughout the SAR.

The ON series open wagon was made for the narrow gauge to update from the older 4 wheel wooden / steel wagons. Rated to 30 tons the all welded construction open bogie wagon was rebuilt quite a number of times. To the point where it no longer looked anything like the original item.

The model being made is the original 6000 series of which only 2 prototypes were built out of a projected mass order.


Attached is a line drawing of the wagon:

Prior to construction I did do a fair bit of background research and drawings 2d / 3d to capture the look of the wagon.

Scott, ci couldn't find your description of how you did the Rn wagon. Is this 3D printing or did you manually cut and shape? Either way BEAUTIFUL. LiG
EDIT: found your posting in BUILDINGS, are the cars made using the same material and procedure? thank you.

Nick - the Rn wagon was a 1mm balsa sheet laminated to a 3mm MDF sheet that was precut to size. I scribed the planks and the doors by hand. The only 3d printed parts were the couplers, coupler box, glad hands and air reservoir all else was hand formed plastic, brass and wire. The wheels are LGB and the axlebox / W iron assembly is a whitemetal casting using a 3d printed master.

The coaling gantry is all timber construction, with shaped styrene and metal. The only commercial items used was styrene corrugated sheeting and plastruc 1:24 ladder.

I've used a number of techiques and materials for each project. All of these have been pretty much made by hand.

Hi Scott, Nice work again. It looks as though the originals were of welded construction, this certainly helps as you won't need to install a million rivets. The builders photograph reminds me of the Melbourne trams in dead storage at Malvern depot. They are all on broad gauge track so only one side is actually on the rails!
Keep up the good work, we're all looking forward to seeing more.
Cheers,

Yes I've certainly moved forwards in timeframe with modelling. lol. Wait until you see phase 2 and 3 of the designs.

Harvey you'll love this - Melbourne Tramways has 134 surplus Trams in storage to give away. Yes! Give! Away!
How does one convince their wife / significant other that these 1:1 scale treasures are up for grabs.

Scott, how telling her it can be a lawn ornament, WITH plants growing in it. I wish I could get a caboose to put on the front lawn. LiG
