Time for the first reveal for 2020 from Bowaters Models! Our Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad Passenger Cars 14, 21/22 and 31!


Covering three different car designs with an alternative roof for the combine, all of them feature: a new design of chassis (which is being rolled out across the entire Sandy River range and included in the Bridgton Designs from day one); platform handrails as standard; a suitably modifiable interior for those who want to take things to the next level, and a easy to build roof!


As standard, they come in MDF with Accucraft Chopper couplings, 3D printed parts and bogies in either 32mm or 45mm gauge. All 3 passenger cars are based on the real life coaches that operated on the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes (both it’s predecessors, the railroad itself and in preservation) and all have real world prototypes. We’ve covered Combine 14 (both as built and with its swayback roof), Passenger Car 21/22 and Excursion Car 31. This allows a prototypical 1-4 car plus train to be modelled with ease. Should these cars sell well, then others may follow as the design allows for changes with ease.


And here’s the thing, you will notice something different about the window openings of 21 and 14 with swayback roof. Yes that’s right, windows!!! We’re still evaluating them, but so far we’re very happy with them! They either fit into the openings or behind them depending on the model. We will be adding them as an optional extra for those who want them for their models. Pricing to be confirmed and we plan to launch this option at Peterborough!


Pricing of the Excursion Car 31 is £90 in MDF and the others is £120 in MDF. Plywood is also available and is an extra £15 per kit. At the start of our 5th year of continued and ever growing operation, these kits will be available as of the 1st of March and will be available for collection at Peterborough. If you want to take up this option, please either email us or message us on Facebook/Instagram by the 28th February 2020 to be able to do so! With plenty more in the works, like our Facebook page and or follow our Instagram as you won’t want to miss what comes next!
