N Gauge British Modern Rail Head Treatment Trains.
« on: November 29, 2012, 10:14:12 PM »
Rail Head Treatment Trains or RHTT, is a seasonal wonder in this country.

Tankers of these can be seen all over the network between Oct-Dec, being pulled by loads of varied traction (once saw a class 67 one end, with DVT the other!!)

Question is are these blue RHTT available in N Gauge kit form or otherwise?
I have seen a couple of very well built custom mades, but nothing much else.

Be interested to find out.

Hi Guys,

Just as a double check - does anyone know the exact diameter of the tanks on the loco hauled RHTT? or scale drawings even?

Iv got the first print soaking in caustic overnight (they look good to me) - test fittings to a dapol FEA-B pair to follow.

Yep - intended as a kit, set of 3Dprinted modules, etch stainless handrails (done) and inner buffer beams. Intended to fit the dapol FEA-B pair (you'll need to make the inter wagon coupling longer).

Regards
Russ

For the dimensions, Ill try dig out the old issue of model rail which had this in for 00 scale, unless anyone has that issue to hand?

Also may be worth emailing this chap, he used a kit, its 00 but there should be no problem scaling his measurements down?
http://www.marstonparkway.org.uk/rhtt_45.html

From photos seen by myself, the scale looks just about right to me. The tank maybe a mm too big but not much at all.
Looks great so far too  :thumbsup:

Hi Russ - looks great thus far - well done!!!!   I'll certainly be getting a couple of kits when available, and my bruv - Peter - will want one too.  I have some measurements from the Model Rail magazine December 2009 where a chap built an OO version based on the Bachmann Intermodal wagon - the chap has some drawings inc the OO measurements.  Suggest there would be a copyright issue if I scan/add here - drop me a PM and I'll get sorted for you if you don't have a copy.

Me too, although this picture of a RHTT at Ais Gill on the S&C suggests I may need more!!

A very odd combination, although on such a notorious area for wheel slip it would be needed.
