With 95% of the Pendolinos dispatched (though we still have a few stragglers to send out – mainly those who have not yet settled their balance and who weren’t in to receive original deliveries!) we are now dispatching the Class B tankers. We are sending them out in date order of the original order. If you have a balance to pay then we will contact you when we are ready to process your order.
These wagons are provided with a small bag containing a cosmetic coupler hook with “instanter” loop and vacuum brake pipe/hose to be fitted to the outer end of a rake.
To fit the replacement coupler hook the cosmetic hook supplied and the Rapido N gauge coupler will need to be removed. The brake hose/pipe fits to the left of the coupler, below the bufferbeam, with the horizontal pipe running beneath the frame out from the centre and the curved hose angled up slightly, as these CAD images show:
We will work through the Class B dispatching as quickly as we can.
