Re: Question for cane bin modellers!

Hello Proftoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Just to muddy the waters even more, I have added three more pictures :
1. An example of the old style cut cane car. This one is in the Sugar
Museum at Mourilyan. Well worth a visit if you haven't been. The only
problem is that they could do with more space - the little indirect drive
Fowler is slap bang next to the Hudswell Clarke - result, both are difficult
2. The last remains of the Queensland Government Railways Boogan Branch
to South Johnstone Mill. The Flat car sits forlornly on a short length of
track. Of interest, however, is that part of the load is a demountable bin.
3. Another example of the demountable bin, this time sitting on a 2'
gauge 8-wheel chassis, to make it suitable for use in the South Johnstone

Dear Ron, Brad,
So 8 tonners are basically 2 X 4 tonners on a common frame, still on
I hope the axle bearings were upgraded to take the extra weight.
Why not bogies under such "double length cars"?
(I know I'm partial to bogie vehicles, rather than 4 wheelers).
Brad, looks like "weathered galvanisd steel" is your best color
