Marbelup Valley Railway - Bogie Freight Wagons

This page will contain photos of each class of bogie freight wagon operating on the Marbelup Valley Railway. Only a few classes are shown at present - more will be added soon.

QV Wheel Wagon
Builder: Gavin and Richard Stallard
Number in Service: 1
Construction: From US D&RGW Sn3 gondola kit

Gavin built most of this wagon, deciding to convert the Sn3 gondola kit to resemble the QV wheel carrying wagon. I finished it off, adding the scalloped wheel supports and etched brake gear parts. The wagon numbers are temporary stickers pending application of decalled numbers.

RA Open Wagon
Builder: Richard Stallard
Number in Service: 1
Construction: Scratchbuilt from styrene

The unusual Fox bogies and most of the detail parts are from etched brass. I did the artwork and Lynton Englund did the photo-etching. Two more RA's are under construction. The wagon numbers are temporary stickers pending application of decalled numbers.

I made etched brake gear parts to complement Stuart's body kit. The bogies are American Models standard gauge bogies, fitted with narrower bolsters and 12 mm wheels.
