2693-SERIES 2 HAL

£340.00 inc vat

2 Hal units 2693-2699 were ordered in 1945 as replacements for wartime losses but were not completed until late 1948.  Built on the same Eastleigh production line, their bodywork bore a strong family resemblance to the post-war all-steel 4 Sub units. Perhaps inevitably given their smooth, rounded profiles, they became known as 'Tin Hals'.

What's in the box -

This Eastleigh Model Rail 2693-series 2 Hal kit gives you all the 4mm scale 3D printed parts you need to build a complete (unpowered) 2-car unit - sides, ends, roofs, interiors, underframes and bogies.

What else you'll need -

  • Couplings - 1 pair of Keen Systems close couplers, plus your choice of NEM inter-unit couplers if you intend to operate the unit in multiple with other Southern Electric stock.

  • A motor bogie.

  • Wheels and bearings - the bogies are dimensioned to accommodate '00', 'EM' or 'P4' gauge 14mm disc wheelsets with standard 26mm 'pinpoint' axles and the sideframes have holes to fit brass 'top hat' wheel-bearings.

  • 8BA/M2 nuts and bolts.

  • Glazing

  • Paints and transfers
