It is advised to read the directions first before proceeding to avoid waste and damaged components. The basic diagrams and photos are supplied as a guide. You can use these detail items on many wagons in the Victorian Railways - V/Line fleets, some interstate units, as well as buildings and signals. Refer to photographs or plans for each wagon / item you are modelling. 

To remove an item. First place the sheet on a piece of masonite or a self healing mat and with a sharp hobby knife gently press down through the sprue thus releasing the item from the sprue. Clean up any sharp edges with a file or wet and dry sandpaper. 

Soldering. For good reliable joints each piece should be cleaned to remove any oxides by using a fine wet and dry paper, track rubber, de-tarning solution or by using Carr's Red label flux paste over the joint. With a small wattage iron, solder should be applied sparingly to the joint and allowed to cool before handling and cleaning prior to fitting and painting.

Gluing. The ladders may be glued to your model with Superglue or similar glues rather than soldering.
Typical use of a ladder is on a tank wagon. Ladders of various shapes and widths can be found on VHGF-Y's and other VR - V/Line wagons.

Another use of ladders is on buildings around your layouts and also the signalling system.

Use photos, magazines and plans as a guide for positioning your ladders on your models.
