The woodtippers are exact models in 1:45 scale and are made in three gauge versions:

- 16,5 mm (750 mm or 2'59"), which corresponds to the model gauge of 0e

- 12 mm (500 mm 600 mm), which corresponds to the model gauge of

Technical data and description

The wood-tippers are made of real Swiss ecologic pine wood, copper, brass, German silver, plastic for the isolation of the wheels, stainless steel and nickeled steel for the axes.

No photo-etched parts are used; instead they are all to scale (1:45) milled and turned parts.

The brass and copper parts are soldered and the wood milled and cut by hand.

The metal fittings only are painted black. The rest is natural and bare, untreated (Swiss) wood as the real one. (On demand a paint-job for the wood with an exact description is with an supplementary price possible)

Like the real wagon the tipper disposes of two locking-levers of the unloading hatch which work like the real

Red arrow, the lever is unlocked.

3 Locking-lever of the tipper-box hatch

4 Coupling chain with hook

5 Plank holder, which serves to detach the tipper-box holding chain to make the box tip (at the original)

The tipper-box is held by chains, like the real, at two chain-hooks, one of them is magnified here. The hook (pointed plate) can be turned around like the original.

 

 

 

 

Green arrow:

The tipper-box is held by two chains to scale, like the original.

White arrow:

The woodtippers are coupled with coupling chain (to scale) and hook.

1 The hook and the chain 2 permit to couple locomotives 1 and wagons of other brands

3 Tipper-box holding chain with the chain hook mounted on the under-frame.

4 Eyelet to put into a plank (one here in front and an other at the rear). It serves to detach the chain at the original to make the box tip.

 

Here the same explained as above but viewed sideways
The open friction bearings of the tipper-box are shown here. They are made open like in reality to permit a fast and easy exchange of the tipper boxes by tipping them over the under- frame stop.

The tipper-boxes are exchangeable under themselves

 

Available Versions viewed with the example of the 1:87 versions:

Blue marking quarry version of the woodtipper like it is used today at the IRR. 3 Metal protection sheet and mounting angle 2, side-wall and hatch edge protection angles for the shovel excavator loading 1.

Green marking cheaper version with the metal sheet protection and angle 1.

The first woodtippers were made without steel base sheet and protection. For the transport of salt and delicate form- sands, all kind of protection was renounced to keep the material off the steel contact in keeping the best quality all the way long.
