Building Non Air Coal Hoppers in N Scale

Non Air NSW Coal Hoppers in N scale 

Several Peco NR119 chassis kits were purchased and some Evergreen 2060 styrene for the sides to follow on from an article in the June 2011 Australian Model Railway Magazine. The photos should be pretty self explanatory.

The virtually structurally complete hoppers.


  1. Hi i was just wondering what are the dimensions you used for the making of the coal hoppers?

    1. All dimensions were in an issue of AMRM some years back and transferred with a pair of vernier callipers.
