FORD RAILMOTOR
Hundred of Manhood & Selsey Tramways
in
7mm (O) 1:43.5

This model may well be suitable to run as freelance narrow gauge



Historical notes:

The Selsey Railmotors were not truck conversions, but purpose built by Edmonds of Thetford, Norfolk, with delivery to Selsey around 1924. There are photographs of the units at Tenterden on the Kent & East Sussex Railway, prior to delivery to Selsey. The pair of railmotors was delivered with a baggage trailer coupled between them. This is believed to have been built by Messrs. Crane of Dereham, also in Norfolk. It is believed that this truck was transferred to the K&ESR in later years. A photograph Shropshire and three car set was published in the local Chichester newspaper with the caption that this set was to be delivered to the Selsey Tramways, but of course a two car set was delivered. Interestingly there is a photograph of the S&M central passenger trailer at the Selsey on the back siding, in the middle of a group of derelict stock. A unique variant on the Selsey Tramways was the use of the Ford and Shefflex railmotors back to back!

Photo tools are available for these models in 7mm. Castings, full instructions, decals (transfers), are available
