what is it

Post by yelrow » Fri Jun 28, 2019 2:59 pm

hi, i was putting together a freight train, this morning, and picked up a tipper wagon to add to train. Its weight came as a total surprise. On closer inspection, underneath is an electrical gismo, and if you move it, the tipper not only goes up, but one side opens. Its a grey tipper on black base. Anyone know how it works, etc. I can find no make or number on it, It came with a recently acquired batch of Dublo, and Trix, but has hornby normal coupling, eg, not 3 rail. Would love to have it performing. No good asking for photo, as cannot understand how to add one. john

Hornby do a (or did) R8132 tipping wagon set with a sort of tipping lift which tipped the whole wagon on its end. May be it is from that set made be Hornby.
