SUSPENDED – South African Railways Range – 2ft Gauge
Due to the release of another range covering the same models we are planning too, we have suspended work on our own SAR range while we reevaluate what to do next.
Bowaters Models are proud to announce our South African Railways 2ft Gauge Range of kits for 16mm scale Garden Railways. The range will consist of 8 coaches, 4 wagons (with plans to expand should the range sell well) and 3 brake vans all covering members of the South African Railways 2ft Gauge Fleet circa 1970 to 2000. The Range includes a range of coaches allowing you to built a train from 2 to 16 coaches long or some of the block freight trains that used to run over the Avontuur Line. The range even includes two modernized coaches as used by the Apple Express which has recently returned to operation in Port Elizabeth (As of January 2018).
The range is designed to be easy to assemble while still producing a scale model for operation with the various 16mm Live Steam and Battery Electric South African Railways items of Motive Power. The range is designed to run on both 32mm and 45mm track (TBC) with a minimum radius of TBC.
As with all our current products, the kits will be available complete with couplings and bogies in the gauge of your choice.
