  1. Attaching additional weight in the form of barrier waggons will not spread the weight, only increase it. On the other hand it will attach an additional 4 axles of braking force for the relatively steep grades that train is working. Ian_B
  2. Just a couple of Barrier wagons to improve the brake force.
  3. has anyone had sight of the Gaugemaster re-run of the Heljan 86?

  4. Fran, you should do a collection of you formation guides and routes. Ian_B
  5. That's correct. anything that is not heavily contaminated, plus other Radioactive sources that require disposal Wikipedia defines it as :- Low-level waste (LLW) is nuclear waste that does not fit into the categorical definitions for intermediate-level waste (ILW), high-level waste (HLW), spent nuclear fuel (SNF), transuranic waste (TRU), or certain byproduct materials known as 11e(2) wastes, such as uranium mill tailings.

  9. Hi Arran, have you any decals to suit 'OO' flat racks either 20' or 40'? Ian_B
  10. The PFAs aren't used for fuel transport. the half height containers are packed with barrels of low level waste (contaminated tools, machinery and things like hospital medical radioactive material,) filled with Concrete, then taken to the store for longterm storage
  11. Accurascale haven't released their KUA yet (soon but not yet). What Nuclear fuel wagon are you thinking of? Ian_B
  12. No Escort Coaches = no load in the KUA so it looks like a movement of empty stock. What are the wagons in the rear?
