OO gauge
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 10:18 PM GMT+7
Hatton's has released images of the H4-BH-001 ZZA 'Beilhack' bogie snowplough 3D printed sample in OO gauge:1/76 scale
In 1984 BR identified the need for more snowploughs to be produced to augment the current ZZA independent snowploughs in use across the network. The solution was found in using redundant Class 40 and 45 bogies and mounting a new plough blade made by Beilhack to the ‘inner’ end of the bogie. Toolboxes were fitted above the axles, the pony wheels were removed and the ploughs were ready for use. Since then they have seen regular use when snow clearing is needed and also on test runs around the network during more settled weather to keep them in good condition. The tooling accommodates the changes in the wagons such as the solar panels fitted by Railtrack and removed by Network Rail.

The following options will be available to order:

H4-BH-001 - Beilhack snow plough (ex Class 40) ZZA ADB965576 in BR yellow
