Pickfords trailer

Post  Chrs777 on Sat 20 May 2017, 11:21 am

Hi, just wondering if there has been any decision to make a pickfords heavy haulage trailer for 4" scale ?
Or does anyone manufacture something similar. I'd love to have one behind my burrell.

I Had start at designing my own but other projects and growing family put it on the back burner.

Its a fairly simple design and with lots of fake rivets could be made to look good.
Most of the fabrication is off the shelf RSJ's. The axle dollies would also be simplified with the rear one having the ability to be locked straight when required.

The wheels are the main issue. They need to be solid cast and the rubbers bonded on.
The Foden wheels are a good substitute and 3" is near the correct size.

I know of someone who has had the wheels cast specially for his own trailer but there are 8 so it was not a cheap exercise.

I dont believe STW are planning anything.

One thing to consider it the sheer weight and size of it.

That's fantastic. Thanks for sharing that. I wonder if they could be built for sale ?
Sonik; the heavier the better 😊
