IG Class Wagon (16 Ton)

The IG was a variant on the standard I designed to handle agricultural machinery, as such it had wide drop down doors rather than the standard side hinged variety. There were several models, this model is of one of the later versions.

The model is converted from SEM's Tommy Bent with ends and end sides shortened accordingly, and two sets of doors with added hinges between, all mounted on an SEM 11'6" chassis. I wanted a typically Australian load - a Furphy wagon was a somewhat easier build than a Sunshine Harvester... Bracing for the load follows typical prototype practice as does the purpose built wooden floor fixing.
