We are pleased to show everyone the latest CAD designs for the new Flangeway Salmon wagons in OO. The initial release wagons will have BR style bogies and steel bed. The bolsters will be in a detail pack along with D rings allowing you to model the wagon in flat bed or bolster variations. Livery and running number details have not been finalised, and there are details still to be added to the CAD designs. Also, pricing and release dates have not been decided on but any future updates will be announced on this thread as soon as we know more. Updates will also be on our Facebook page here.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The brake rodding and brake air tanks are not on the current CAD, but will be on the final design. Also, the number of trusses and handbrake wheels will be sorted on the next CADs.

Being selfish, unrealistic and greedy, if you were to make the bufferbeam pipes available seperately,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Is the coupling pocket articulated to help it get around corners?

 

Does the coupling pocket clear the longer wheelbase versions of the bogies?

 

Shouldn't there be 6 underframe trusses not 4?

 

The shank of the buffer looks a bit weedy.

 

Don't a lot of Salmons have handbrake wheels at all corners?

 

You have chosen an unusual axlebox - fitted to only one lot as far as I can tell, the curved top variety being much more common.

 

WOuld it make sense for the basic model to only have shackles, and for the belt tensioner to be on a separate sprue for more modern modellers to add themselves?

This shows the 6 trusses and shackles well http://PaulBartlett....mon5ft/e66646d5

Thank you for the feedback so far. I will pass it along and endeavour to answer your concerns asap. These CADs are not the final versions and are still subject to change.

Edit: Also fixed the pictures as Photobucket seems to have stopped working properly! :D

I now have some answers for you about the points raised.

 

1) The number of trusses and handbrake wheels WILL be changed on future CADs. 

 

2) The axlebox is correct for the version & running numbers we are producing. Future versions may have different bogie types and would have the correct axleboxes for the bogie type.

 

3) The coupling pockets will work the same way as Hornby pockets on their long vehicles and will easily go round corners, but we have not made the final decision on whether they will be articulated or not. And yes, they will clear longer wheelbase versions.

 

4) Unfortunately any additional loose pieces such as belt tensioners in the detail pack would add considerable expense to the model process.

 

I hope this helps,

Alex @ Footplate

A quick update, we recently received the new CADs for the Salmon Wagons with a number of improvements. There is still one thing that needs to be changed but it should not be too long until we can show you the updated versions.

Looking forward to these more so now that Hattons have announced the Salmon modules on the FEA-S (and -E). You nearly always see some Salmon or Osprey with an FEA-S or two. 

 

When shall we know the full specs and choices to order?

I don't know exactly yet, but final details and liveries are being sorted out so hopefully it wont be too much longer until we can show the options available.

Is there any update on these: new CAD drawings or details of the initial versions to be produced?  I assume that tooling hasn't commenced yet, which means that these are probably still a year away, but I'm looking forward to these - especially when you get around to producing reasonably contemporary air braked versions.

We should getting final CADs soon, and tooling/production is due to commence shortly after that. We are still aiming at getting these out this year.
