Been away for a while, missed the first batch and wondered if anyone is selling any of the Railfreight models (Rails' triple packs or the general release ones)? I can guess the answer but might as well ask.

 

Please send a private message if you do. Thanks,

Hi, several retailers will be stocking the Railfreight liveried wagons from the second batch which is due to go into production shortly. Trains 4U in the previous post and Rails being two of them.

I was stood in York station last week when a pair of 60s rumbled through with a very long rake of BBA and BAA in tow. No idea if this is a regular working but wow those wagons are looking knackered these days - replicating their current condition would be some job and that full rake would be expensive to do! Was the Puma 60 + Drax 60 if anyone interested. Not sure why 2 60s as would seem a lot of power? Maybe one broke?

Sorry not quick enough - was walking back to my car and saw a new route over a bridge I hadn’t seen before (it’s been a few years...) - followed it, ended up next to Scarborough platforms, a rumble and oh look!!  There was a guy standing expectantly with a camera there so I guess he might have one but I don’t know who he was!

Regular, and several times a day - some use the freight avoiding line so not seen at the station. Some sets have BDAs with them as well - 68 - 62 years old and going like the clappers, loaded. Lots of photos on my site. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/class66/e3cf62a5    https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/class60/e9272f1fa   I've not seen a pair of 60s, but 66 and 60 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/class60/eeeb36149

 

As always the BBAs are here https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/bba   as you say they are in a right mess, and many have been altered especially floor, ends and some bogies. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/bba/eeed113f5

@Grimleygrid looking good! Can you tell me how long these are please? I have some BZAs and BYAs I might sell to fund some and wonder how many I'd need!

 

Thank you Tom.

 

The wagons are 215mm over buffers.

Hope that helps.

 

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

@Grimleygrid when should we be expecting them to hit the shops? I've already got mine pre-ordered so looking forward to getting them!

 

Thank you Chris, we are also very excited about the second run, especially the new liveries.

 

Feedback has been fed back to the factory and production is well underway. Unfortunately, we cannot say for certain when they will be here, however, once production has been completed, we will provide a further update and estimated delivery. This is all dependant on the factory, Covid and shipping.

 

Hope that helps.
