RTR Wagons in: 

7¼" Gauge :: 5" Gauge

BR-standard-box-van

We have, for the time being at least, kept our ready to run wagons separate from the on-line parts shop, because of the complexity of some of the options and the varying lead times, plus the requirement only to pay a deposit when ordering. Follow these links:

Chassis and Wagon Parts

Rolling chassis - available in 5 inch and 7.25 inch gauge

Pictured above is an example of one of our 7.25" rolling chassis.

These standard chassis are available as 9ft or 10ft wheelbase version.

They are ideal for the self builder wishing to make a head start on a wagon project, and can be modified to your own spec when required. Note the (dummy) leaf springs, brake gear and axle boxes which are indicative of the level of detailing for all our wagons.

Our design and construction methods ensure a wagon which is rugged and usable as well as good to look at - and all at a surprising price!

Good does NOT need to equal expensive, as some other suppliers' prices might seem to suggest!

A note about prices: 
 
At 17D Miniatures our policy is to work to keep margins as low as practically possible in order to bring quality models and parts to the market at very competitive prices. A comparison with other similar suppliers will confirm this to be the case on the vast majority of our products. 
 
However, with such tight margins, this means we cannot afford to always absorb raw materials cost increases. Steel prices in particular - a major part of all our products - can be very volatile. For this reason we may need to adjust our prices more frequently than we would like, so please check the latest downloadable pricelist before ordering, or give us a call.
