A range of commissioned locomotive and tender chassis brought to you by Rumney Models. They are slightly different depending on the specification provided by the commissioner but all are deisgned to be sprung and springing wire is included with the etches. All will require High Level hornblocks.

The chassis is designed to provide a modern etched sprung chassis for the Alan Gibson kit and features built in CSB suspension along with brakegear, cosmetic driving wheel springs, ashpan detailing, guard irons and balance weights. For simplicity pony trucks that make use of the CSB suspension are provided rather than the proper radial trucks of the prototype. It is designed for P4 but can be built in EM with just a little extra work. The F4/5/6 chassis has a very long wheelbase but due to the way the chassis is set up the minimun radius the chassis can traverse without modification is 1m. High Level hornblocks along with wire and 11/32″ tube for the air cylinder are required to complete.

A modern sprung chassis to suit the Craftsman LMS 1P kit. Features sprung driving wheels, a sprung bogie, full brakegear, dummy inside motion, 3D printed details and a removable keeper plate with cosmetic driving wheel springs. Can be built in P4, EM and OO. High Level hornblocks are required to complete.

A modern, fold up, CSB’d underframe designed for use with the Alan Gibson J15 kit. The kit includes complete dummy inside motion and full brake gear. A number of options are covered including square and bevel bottom fireboxes as well as those converted from the former to the later, different length brake shoe brackets, steam and Westinghouse air brakegear, Sharp Stewart brakes for the first batch built and fluted or plain coupling rods. EM/P4 only. Springing wire is included. High Level hornblocks along with wire and tube are required to complete.

These two tender kits compliment the J15 loco chasssis but of course can find a home behind other loco types. Both are CSB’d underframes for use with the Alan Gibson S23 tender kit. They include a fold up subframe with full brakegear and options for both steam and Westinghouse air brakes. The S23 kit includes replacement sideframes with options for round or straight top sideframe cut outs. The Z14 kit includes replacement sideframes of the correct profile with options for deep and shallow sideframe cut outs as well as numerous brakegear arrangements to allow the earlier tenders to be modelled from the Alan Gibson S23 kit. EM/P4 only. Springing wire included. High Level hornblocks along with wire and tube are required to complete.

This set of etches is intended for the Nucast Partners kit and can be built in OO, EM and P4. Both Loco and underframe can be built rigid or sprung using High Level hornblocks (not included). CSB plots are built in so if you wish to build it sprung you will not need to worry about setting them up. Removable keeper plates with cosmetic driving wheel spring detal are included as are full brakegear, balance weights and motion bracket/slidebars so there’s something visible in between the loco frames. Springing wire is included.

A small etch to enable the Brassmasters Ivatt spring controlled pony truck to be built as the swing link version. These were fitted at one end of the Ivatt and BR 2-6-2T locos, the other end being the spring controlled version.
