W.A.G.R - GA & M.R.W.A - A Wagons



The next wagon to be released by Railswest Models is the GA class (W.A.G.R) or A class (M.R.W.A) four wheel open wagon.

The model will be produced as a one peice body kit which will require the running gear and couplers fitted prior to paint.


It is proposed the kit will be avaliable at the November meeting.

More details of the life of these wagons can be found at Andy Mays Railway Page at the following link http://homepage.ntlworld.com/asmay2002/ga_wagon.htm

McKenzie & Holland Signals


The WAGR chose a British signalling company by the name of McKenzie & Holland to supply lower quadrant signals for their rail network, luckly New Zealand did the same as these signals are avaliable from New Zealand Fine Scale.

New Zealand Finescale is a supplier of superb S Scale (3/16" to the Foot) signal parts to suit modellers of New Zealand, Queensland and WAGR narrow (3'6') guage railways. These are highly accurate representations of the McKenzie & Holland Somersault signals and associated equipment used by these railways: New Zealand Finescale Highly Recommended!

Click on the link below to see what is avaliable for not only signals but other items in SN 3-1/2 from New Zealand Finescale.
