Use for Shredded Wheat carriages
« on: November 21, 2019, 12:28:43 AM »
A while ago I bought a couple of Shredded Wheat carriages on Ebay. Tonight I have removed the buffers, the wheels and running boards. I have cut away the four ridges across the underside of each carriage and glued on the (cut-down) chassis of two Z-gauge tankers. I now have a couple of bogie carriages to run behind my Nn3 (N6.5) tram engine on the narrow-gauge track on my layout.

The next move will be to add a little weight, paint them and add some glazing, but that'll have to wait - I've got to attend a parents' evening tomorrow night, take my son to and from music on Friday night and go to the Warley Show on Saturday.

Here's a couple.

A lot to do yet, but you get the idea.

I certainly do! I've always liked the idea of a working narrow gauge addition to an N gauge layout.  :thumbsup:

Looking good   :thumbsup:

You've just given me an idea for a cheap add on to my layout with a couple of those hacked about in a field to make camping carriages or similar

Yes, they'd work well for that or for a small, run-down, cafe. One of the magazines had an article about one carriage (or was it two)  built onto as a house.

Hmmm, at this rate I may have to drain ebay of Shredded Wheat carriages
