Riding Car for 5" Gauge Miniature Railways

This unit is convertible to suit either a raised or ground-level track. The comfortable padded seat fits into a slot in the braked 4-wheel chassis and can removed to fit the MDF seat box in between. There are two sets of stirrups, one for each application, the raised track stirrups are adjustable for width. The coupling jaws have multiple holes allowing for offset (e.g. 3 1/2" gauge locos). There is a quick fit/release safety chain and a non-locking hand brake. The MDF is primed ready for painting. There is also a small coal box (not shown) that slots in front of the seat.

I modified the original to create a safe, effective, comfortable, flexible and easy-to-use unit. With a decent paint job it could even look quite good!

Dimensions are:

Length - overall 24"
Width - overall 12", chassis & seat box 9"
Height - chassis 4 1/2", seat box 12", seat 3 1/2"

Please note that collection is welcome (LS27) but if delivery is required, the item will be sent in two separate parcels, oddly enough it's cheaper that way! Cost of delivery is £25.
