The kit is for the diagram L4 crane
match trucks as built in 1901/2, numbered 1 and 6. They ran with Cowans-Sheldon
15 ton cranes also numbered 1 and 6, introduced in 1901. Crane and Match
Truck number 1 were both later renumbered 7. Construction was of riveted
steel with drop down side doors to the toolboxes and a high level
pivoting roller on which the crane jib rested.
The model is designed to run with the D&S
DS 802 Cowans-Sheldon
Crane kit. It is of etched brass construction to bring out the detail of
the original wagon and faithfully reproduce the thin section to the roof, floor
edges and roller supports. Included in the kit are whitemetal axleboxes/springs
and buffers. It can be built for 00, EM and P4 scales.
Only wheels (3ft1½” 8-spoke), bearings and couplings (screw on the prototype) are needed to complete
the kit. Comprehensive instructions and photographs are provided.
