|These instructions describe the construction of a lorry designed in the 1950's for use where Diesel fumes were unacceptable, many of these small vehicles were used by British Railways to deliver goods in narrow city streets.
At 1:9 scale, and built from the contents of a Meccano Set 10, the model features automatic coupling, one-lever uncoupling, prototypical forward and reverse from the motor, and an all-pinion differential. The piggyback trailer has drop-down sides and removable hinged tailboard. An extra trailer has a conventional drop-down undercarriage. Both trailers are fitted with a parking brake. Uses one Meccano Powerdrive motor.
