BR Std 4 75XXX Double Chimney


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I got bored waiting for Hornby or Bachmann to do their 75XXX in lined green with a BR2 tender and double chimney so went ahead and bought a Bachmann 75027 with a single chimney.

 

My intention is to renumber it as either 75005/8/22, all of which served late in the day on the North Cornwall and had double chimneys.

 

Can anyone give me any leads on who produces a suitable casting to replace the existing single chimney with a double?

 

Thank you.

If you get no joy there Chris, I have a plastic one left over from an Ivatt 4MT conversion that might be useable for your loco. Gratis, of course!

Thanks Dave, I may well be in touch after Truro show this weekend. Just got to work out now if the single chimney is part of the body moulding or a separate part....

No probs Chris, I suspect that Bachmann will have developed the tooling with a view to interchangeable chimneys. It may well be removable without too much effort!

Hi all

 

As the previous reply says, for the locos you mention you need the Swindon Double chimney, unfortunatly, the only casting I can remember being produced was in the old Crownline range. you would be very lucky to find one of those now.
