7NGC2 MNR Cleminson 6 Wheel Third

Product Code: 7NGC002
7NGC2 MNR Cleminson 6 Wheel Third

Etched Brass Kit. Ten coaches were built in 1879 by the Swansea Wagon Company for the opening of the Manx Northern Railway. They had Cleminson patent six wheeled underframes where each axle ran in a separate pivoted frame. Each frame was interconnected in such a way that they 'steered' around curves in the track. There was no form of continuous braking on the MNR so Nos 5 and 6 were fitted with a brakemans compartment, No.8 was similarly converted at a later date. Partitions and glazing were changed over me years and are allowed for in the kit. Unlike the Foxdale Coach none of the Cleminson six wheelers are running today on the Isle of Man, but two of these thirds have been privately preserved. Designed for 21mm gauge track. Slaters wheels and Roxey lost-wax chopper couplings needed to complete and can be supplied.
