These are a neat pack of four bogies for Irish stock. The wheels are ultra free wheeling in the tiny bears which are set into revolving axle boxes (lots of spares included in baggie). Yes, you read that correctly, rotating boxes. These are also very well moulded and detailed, and the splash of colour adds that little extra touch of finesse to then. Though they are a push on fit to rolling stock, they are quite tight. A pinch or two on the two locating lugs is needed first, but be careful as they can be brittle. They do look better on my Tara Mines Stock.
Bogie wagon packs come in handy for spares to replace trouble trucks or any that are broken or lost. I had a minor fault with one of my Tara Mine wagons. A small part was missing beneath an axle box, but instead of that tiny piece being sent out to me or just one bogie. I was actually sent a full pack of four. These bogies are slightly different in that parts of them are colour painted to highlight the spring details etc. Whereas my wagons as bought are all plain black. I didn't pull the tiny piece I needed of one of the replacements in case I broke anything else. I opted to change the two bogies on my faulty Tara. These replacement painted bogies really stand out with the blue livery. That when I make another I will buy further packs to change my other eight wagons to them. I could paint the bogies myself, but I have shakey hands, and I may not get a correct colour match for the new painted set. So thanks anyway to IRM for the superb maintenance service.
Changed over bogie worked. No more derailing. Thank you
Well finished and run smoothly. Well done Accurascale.
I ordered the Y33 bogie pack for use on a future project. No further details can be disclosed at this time.
Delighted to see the bogies, ideal for replacing the old MIR kit bogies on my bogie cement and ammonia wagons, highly recommended.
Y33 bogie packs are excellent. Wondering if you will release 20foot Irish Chassis. Now that would something. 20ft flats would magic as well.
