Inspection and Maintenance Platforms



Inspection and Maintenance Platforms

Hopper Car / Tank Car Inspection Rack

This rack can be used in a yard scene or an industrial area wherever hopper cars or tank cars need to be inspected, It has a swing down platform which can be raised out of the way to move cars along the  track. It stands at about 7 1/2 inches tall. The stairway has been redesigned to offer a more compact footprint. Piping can be added to  make the inspection rack a loading rack. 


Maintenance Platform

The superstructure of the maintenance platform has been redesigned to look  less bulky and the stairway moved to the side to save space. This platform sits higher than a standard loading dock to allow maintenance  personnel to work on the upper levels of the train. The platform is  approximately 3 inches wide by 9 inches long and 2 3/4 inches high. All platforms come standard with a guard rail and two lamp posts (12VDC). Platforms can also be assembled with the stairway on the end so rolling stock on two parallel  tracks can be serviced. Guard rails would extend along both sides of the  platform with two gates on each side for access to two parallel tracks.  Just contact us with your specifications! Add the fuel pumps to give  the feel of a real service platform!  


Fuel Pump

Fuel  Pumps can be added to the Maintenance Platform to add some action to the railroad track-side structure! The fuel pump consists of rounded pump tank, a rectangular pump electrical housing and a hose assembly that swivels. The pump measure approximately 3/4 inch (W) x 1 3/4 inch  (L) x 2 3/4 inch (H). The standard color is dull nickel. Other colors  are available - just ask! The O Scale pump has been redesigned. There is now an electrical conduit box on the backside of the pump electrical  housing. The pump swivel has been redesigned to rotate at two points
