The front footsteps on the Bachmann
Stanier Mogul are moulded from plastic and are an add-on item to be
attached by the modeller. Unfortunately, they are very thick and will
seriously affect the pony truck’s sideways movement and hence, once
fitted, the radius of curve that the model will negotiate.
These replacement footsteps are designed
to replace the plastic ones and, being made of a thinner material, will
allow greater sideplay on the pony truck.
They may also be used on other models of
the Stanier Mogul.
Also included on the etch is a jig for
drilling the lifting hole in the vertical front frames. ((lower right
