YQA Super Tench engineers wagon (OO/4mm)



A OO gauge (1:76.2) model (twin pack) of YQA Super Tench engineers wagons.  The YQA Super Tench were originally built in 1959-61 as Borails. In 1981-2 150 of the 165 Borails were converted to Borail BRAs with new Y25 bogies, air brakes, new bolsters (6 instead of 5) and a low body added on top of the original deck.  Around 2010 EWS rebuilt (again) some of the wagons by removing the low body and ISO engineers’ modules with drop-down doors and mesh sides were fitted.

Our model will feature:

  • twin pack of wagons (each individually numbered and with prototypical livery variations)
  • accurate details of bogie type, brake gear/brake wheels and buffer differences
  • highly detailed plastic body with diecast body/underframe
  • NMRA RP25.110 wheelsets on 26mm axles
  • NEM couplers with dummy screwlink couplers

Please note that you are pre-ordering a model which is in development and will be delivered in the future (in return for a discounted price).
