Product Features and Details
2 piece set tipping bucket wagons type Ommi 51 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. Epoch III. Now available with cose coupler motion link and NEM 355 shaft. The models have different running numbers. From 1951 on the DB bought approx. 4.000 tipping bucket wagons type Ommi 51 Epoch III (designated from Epoch IV on: F-z 120). They were mainly used in blocktrains for the transportation of heavy bulk goods such as sand, gravel or crushed stone. Every tipping bucket wagon had a cargo area of 22 m³ - which was not too much, compared to the UIC standard E-wagon that had even 36 m³. From the five tipping buckets which are tiltable to both sides, the load can be emptied directly into other containers. For this, the support bar is unlocked on the opposite side. The empty tipping bucket returns automatically to the center position. In the model the filigree design is reproduced authentically. The lower body frame is breached (disrupted) and all struttings authentically reproduced. The tipping buckets which are loaded with crushed stones can be used separately.
