WANTED - A OO Tipper truck that TIPS !

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I am asking this in the hope that one of you may have come across what I'm looking for.


On my 'Cilldargan' layout I want to creat a scene where a tipper truck is in the act of tipping its load from a loading bank into the wagon below.


To do this of course, I need a Tipper Truck that actually TIPS - The ranges carried by Hattons (Base Toys, etc.) include a good number of tipper trucks, BUT they don't say If they actually TIP or not.

The only one shown in a tipping position is the EFE Bedford Tipper Truck, and I was really P*****D-O*F :(( when, after paying about 3 times the price of equivalent models in other ranges I found that, while it TIPS, the tailgate is FIXED so rendering the whole tipping idea a complete waste of time.


I don't wan't to spend my way through all the tipper trucks available in the hope of finding what I want, so I wonder If anyone has come across a Tipper Truck that tips AND has a working tailgate.


Cheers from Down Under.
