Thanks all, there has been a lot of work put into the model so far including a trip to Scunthorpe steel works to measure the real thing and take more photos than any sane person would ever need in order to produce the wagon.

 

We are very proud of what we have produced.

 

Regards Cav

Will you be tooling any wonky stakes?

I doubt that we will be tooling them but the material will be bendable to allow wonky stancions to be modelled.

Steel  ingots made from Das clay  , not sure if they are slightly oversized , but have seen a pic at Thornaby of  BBA / BAA with 2  large ingots on each wagon

If you are going to do cradles for the BBA wagon , how about the ex BOA cradles of which 5 were put on BBA to make them BIA for imported coil use , also used on BOA and BSA (ex BAA) wagons,

Trains4U, just down the (long) road from you, are Cavalex agents.

We are currently discussing costs with our manufacturer, once that has been established we will open an expression of interest/pre order page on our website for you to back the project.

As I posted, there is no need to deal with any retailer if you are pre ordering the wagon. We will be opening up the project with direct sales as per our previous PGA project.

Hi Will. The bogies have been designed to take wheels upto P4 however you would have to either remove or adapt the brake gear as due to their nature (disk brakes) they have to be set at a partiular gauge. They are seperate items though so no big deal to resolve.
