Hi there
Picked up a couple of old PD kits without instructions. Am working on the PC02 LMS/BR 13 ton 5 plank open wagon. Just trimming out the parts and trying to see how they fit together. What I'm trying to figure out is where the two supplied vacuum cylinders go? Have looked at Paul Bartlett's site but can't seem to see the underside detail very well although many seem to have a vacuum cylinder slightly off set from the centre V. The kit floor illustrated here has one larger pip slightly off centre which may be where one cylinder could go (but makes the other redundent!). There's the associated T bar (2 of) to presumably link to that. Is that where it should go i.e. across the width of the wagon or should it go lengthways on the chassis side? As you can see a bit of confusion reigns here! Appreciate any help offered.
Thanks
Ray

Hi Ray
Looking at your pics of the underside of the wagon. On the floor there is a raised dimple about central. On the underside of the vacuum cylinder there is a small sunken dimple. These I think are probably alignment spots. You will only need one cylinder. The rod with a spigot on one side will fit between the two V irons on the chassis, going across the wagon. Hope this helps

Thanks for that - it was the conclusion I was coming to but great to have an experienced modeller confirm that.
Cheers
Ray
