AnDel Models industrial bolster wagon
Running on two skip chassis connected by a stretcher, this bolster wagon set is typical of the “designed for a purpose wagon” found on narrow gauge railways. It is ideal for transporting those tree trunks or lengths of rail when repairs are necessary, making a useful addition to a works train.
