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!
These models feature lots of accurate details based on the prototypes, unfortunately they do not Tip like the real ones but the still look great on any industrial scene. A great looking model and a credit to Peco's 009 range.
