Some friends currently have a Red Rattler circa 1920's fabrication on their property which requires some re-levelling.
Can anybody tell me what is the average weight of the carriage. It has no bogies or motors.
Any info appreciated.
According to the book mentioned above, car 4622 was one of the 1940-type Tulloch steel cars.Thanks again Spletsie. I assume then the static weight, sans wheels/bogies, would be approx 25-30T?
4622 entered service in January 1955, was condemned in February 1992, and then sold for private use.
As 4622 was a trailer car it did not have motors. In service its weight was 34 tonnes. It's length over the body is 62'8".
