GR330 Hudson "Rugga" V-Skips (3) - Brown 009 Scale
The familiar "Rugga" V-Skip "tipping" wagon design was introduced in the 1930s, a development of the Robert Hudson company, based in Leeds. They could be supplied to the customer's specific requirements, with a skip size ranging from 13.5 to 54 cubic feet (0.38 to 1.53 cubic metres), and in most track gauges. The design allows the skip to tip in either direction, perfect for small industrial railways that needed to move and unload materials quickly and efficiently. The company even boasted that at any one time several thousand could be supplied from stock! Now, we (and even Peco) won't claim here to have "several thousands in stock" but what we can tell you is that they are supplied in an attractive display box of three. The models, in keeping with Peco's previous OO-9 offerings, are extremely free-wheeling and come complete with integral OO-9 couplers allowing prototypical close coupling.
