The latest 2 new arrivals to Ruby Road are PWA vans for a UKF bagged fertiliser flow to Gillingham and Andover from Ince near Stanlow.

One of the vans needs attention to fix broken/missing buffers on end and there are a couple of missing hand wheels, but nothing serious.

I must also figure out a way of getting them to couple closer together.

You should probably paint the ends brown, and if you can, remove the 'Procor' lettering as none carried this.

Thanks Jon

I will certainly do this.

I have seen a photo of one van with the procor lettering on.

What is the tightest radius planned on your layout? If it is fairly generous (radius 3 or above) then you could use screw/3 link/instanter couplings as these are the most realistic generally speaking (I think they had instanter or screw links)

Train set at the moment, but hopefully moving on to less tight curves.
