OO Gauge (supplied unpainted)
Until the 1960s the majority of BR locomotives had provision only for Vacuum Train brakes. From the early 1960s the standard air brake system was introduced, therefore it was common to see locos and rolling stock dual braked (i.e. fitted with both vacuum and air brakes). The use of vacuum brakes on BR was phased out during the 1980s.
All Class 47 locomotives were fitted with vacuum train brakes from new, however some of the later built locomotives were also fitted with air brakes when new.
This set of brake pipes is enough for both ends of one Class 47 Locomotive, the UNPAINTED pack includes:-
2 - Air Brake Pipes (BP) - Red
4 - Main Reservoir Air Pipes (MRP) - Yellow
2 - Vacuum Hoses (VAC)
2 - Steam Heat Pipes (S/H)
2 - ETH (Electric Train Heating) Jumper Cables (ETH) - Orange
2 - ETH (Electric Train Heating) Jumper Receptacles (ETH) - Orange
For dual braked locos, fit the air brake and vacuum brake pipes.
For vacuum only braked locos, fit just the vacuum brake pipes.
For train heating boiler fitted locos, fit the steam heat pipes.
For ETH fitted (Class 47/4) locos, fit the ETH Cables.
- There were many variations between members of the Class 47 fleet in pipe configurations, fitting and placement; therefore it is recommended to refer to photographs of the real thing when fitting these parts.
- All pipes have a 0.7mm peg that can be fitted into a drilled hole in the buffer beam, alternatively the peg can be cut-off and the pipe attached with a small amount of adhesive.
- These parts are delicate and may not be suitable for use with couplings fitted, especially on tighter radius curves.
- The pipes are supplied unpainted, please refer to pictures for typical colours.
- Top-Tip - use a light coat of white primer first, and paint the pipes before removing them from the sprue.
