                       Chassis specification. 

1      Comprehensive instructions comprising of 8, A4 pages of assembly instructions.           One A4 page of diagrams and a parts list.  The fret has part numbers etched               beside each part for easier identification.

2     This is the latest addition to our Easi-Rider range of loco chassis for kit built                 loco's.  The chassis etch is in 0.4mm nickel silver for improved strength and                 rigidity.  No need to buy an expensive chassis assembly jig, this chassis can be           folded up around a 12" steel rule. It fits the Alexander and Nu-Cast bodies body           with only one small alteration to the drag box under the cab.  This has to be                 reduced in height by approx 1mm to accommodate the two wires holding the               brake pull lever.  We have successfully fitted one of these chassis to the London           Road Models etched kit with a little extra effort to allow for the difference in                   footplate thickness.

3     The all new chassis works on the same proven principles as our NER P3,                     LNER/BR J27 chassis but with the benefit of hindsight and experience has even           more detailed features.

4     We still use the tried and proven 40:1 2-stage gearbox and Coreless 1219 motor         for OO,EM and P4 gauge. 

5     The coupling rods are made up from 8 etched pieces and pivot on the                           crankpins.     

6     The brake hangers are prototypical in appearance and the rigging is prototypical            in operation. (See image of the underside of the chassis)

7      Provision has been made for the use of Gibson Plunger Pickups. Should you                wish to use American style current collection then pickups aren't necessary at all.

8      Our test chassis will run 24" Radius curves in EM gauge and Set Track 2nd                  radius curves in OO gauge.

9      Cost for both versions of the loco and tender chassis kit is £56.50 inc P&P (UK            Mainland only).

10     Cost of loco chassis kit with Coreless 1219 motor £82.50 inc + £4.45 P&P
