Around 1903 the WAGR built six BA class horseboxes (BA 1000-10005). They were commonly used to cart horses to race meetings around the country. Although they were probably never all used together in the one train, they had a rather uneventful life and had the advantage of also carrying up to six strappers or jockeys.
This model is a Railwest Kit. It is easy to construct and the fine detail of the doors and ends makes this little kit on of my favourites. I used Raileys paint, NSW Tuscan Red, to try and replicate the early paint scheme of indian red that the fleet may have been painted in at some stage.
I also added some internal detail, such as benches and people. I used a 3mm Yellow LED with pickups in the bogies to illuminate the inside so that you can "see" the people in the compartment as the train rolls past.
