BFNV Flat Steel Wagon | 1:87 HO Scale Model
Bogie Flat Steel Wagon ‘BFNV’
The BFNV wagon is specifically designed to carry steel coils. These wagons are compartmentalised into five troughs. The troughs are positioned laterally to facilitate positioning the coils in an “eye to the platform” configuration. This enables the transporter to load and unload these coils from a platform using fork lifts. This coil wagon design can carry 69.6 tons of cargo. There are 58 of these wagons in one rake.
Flat wagons can be inducted under the Liberalized Special Freight Train Operators (LSFTO) scheme of Indian Railways.
About the Scale Model
The BFNV Scale Model is made with a combination of 3 D Printing, Laser Cut Acrylic and nickel-cadmium extruded parts. HO scale train sets are popular among model railroad enthusiasts, and they offer a great balance between size and detail. These sets are 1/87th the size of real trains, making them a common choice for both beginners and experienced model railroaders.
