Answers on a postcard please

#1

Post by platelayer »

Hi, i am building a Peco P-way wagon kit, the instructions say a hole needs to be drilled in the frame. Looking
at the diagram it shows were to drill the hole but it`s not a very clear (to me) image, opinions sought please.
There is , i think an injection point that could be it or a cross mark to the left of the drill bit on the sole bar.
I am note sure and do not want to ruin the kit before i start.

What is the hole for. Can’t you work out the position from whatever goes in the hole.

Find what goes in the hole and locate the position by comparing it with a picture of the wagon.

Guessing.... It can't be that much. Possibly a brake wheel or lever pivot?

That’s right Brian it is to do with the brake rigging.

Its the brake ratchet bracket, simple enough to work out where to drill hole, looks a poor kit.
