The food source for industry . . . . .
Whole trains of coal wagons running in fixed rakes ran from the coal mines in the Ruhr to the factories, feeding the industrial furnaces to make iron and steel or direct to harbours to be loaded onto ships.
These tiny wagons (called Ok wagons) are highly detailed, modelled so that the individual coal bunkers can be removed from the chassis, as they would have been lifted off by crane in real life.
In the model wagons, each bunker is held in place by an innovative magnetic design so that they can be lifted off and replaced as necessary!
Different wagon Numbers
Enthusiasts will know that these wagons ran in long, fixed rakes, so as each batch is produced in the future, the running number of each wagon will be sequentially changed for extra realism.
Of course, to satisfy the demands from today’s discerning modellers, each wagon has close-coupling sockets.
Various Epochs of History
These wagons ran through the stages of the development, from Epoch II to the present day, so these wagons incorporate the slight historical variations to reflect the subtle changes in railway era. [Epochs 2,3, 4 and 5]
