Model Railway Lineside Sleeper Ballast Bins

Model Railway Lineside Sleeper Ballast Bins 3D print model


Lineside Ballast bin made from railway sleepers. 3 slightly different designs included (See Photos)

Ballast bins are normally spaced every mile or so next to the railway. Ideal for any layout to add a bit of extra detail alongside the track. Additional detail added to show where track was attached to the sleeper.

This ballast bin has been designed at OO gauge, 1/76 scale. for HO gauge print at 87%, 1/87 scale, for O gauge UK print at 175%, 1/43.5 scale, for O gauge American print at 158%, 1/48 scale, for N Gauge UK print at 51.5%, 1/148 Scale. (Caution: I have not test printed this in this scale).

Recommend printing OO or below on a 3D resin printer to get best print definition, for larger scales resin or filament 3D printers can be used. Recommend hand painting as brush strokes will give impression of wood grain.
