Class 31 dummy chassis - £25 per chassis
Suitable for both Poole and China build Graham Farish locos
The British Rail Class 31 diesel locomotives, also known as the Brush Type 2 and previously as Class 30, were built by Brush Traction from 1957-62. They were numbered in two series, D5500-D5699 and D5800-D5862. The first Class 31 entered service in November 1957, they were initially allocated across the midlands and East Anglia.
The Chassis for the Class 31 is a 1 size fits all with an underslung fuel tank. If the body you have has buffers and a bufferbeam, using Snips, cut the Cab Floor with bufferbeam off outside the Bulkhead (upright) wall on either end. If it's a new style body with no buffers, the chassis fits straight in, although be warned the bulkhead fits between the back of the cab and a window at one end on the bodyside IT'S A TIGHT FIT! you could cut the Bulkheads off
It comes with a chassis, 2 bogies with retainer pins, 4 buffers, 6 wheels and 2 couplings with springs.
The bogie side frames have lots on show including sandboxes, steps, axleboxes, etc... I have incorporated pockets for the Rapido style spring coupling allowing you to couple to another locomotive should you wish to for double heading, or for a dead in tow locomotive.
