PFA, by Accurascale 07/07/20 NEW RUN ANNOUNCED!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Great news! We have new packs of nuclear low level waste, Cawoods and white British Gypsum packs on the boat and due to land at our warehouse in late July/early August!

These packs feature all new running numbers, so can compliment your existing fleets as well as appeal to those who missed out first time round! 

 

There are two packs of nuclear waste PFAs, two packs of Cawoods and a single white pack of British Gypsum wagons available. Due to the COVID19 backlog we werent able to get as many produced as we had hoped so the production run is limited in size a bit.

As you know, these liveries and combinations sold out very quickly first time round, so we dont expect these to hang around for long.

We have also answered pleas from many modellers and now offer our gypsum containers as an accessory pack on their own. There is one blue pack and one white pack, each containing three containers for a price of £19.95.

You can pre-order the wagons and container packs here: https://accurascale.co.uk/collections/pfa-2-axle-container-flat-wagon/pre-order?view=view-36&grid_list=grid-view

 

They are also available from your favourite Accurascale Approved stockist! 

 

Cheers!

Hi everyone,

 

Just a warning, the low level nuclear wagons are rapidly disappearing. We've never seen anything quite like it! Thanks to everyone who has ordered! 

 

Cheers!

I ordered both LLNW packs pretty much straight away when I saw the announcement, just keep doing what you're doing and you'll end up printing you're own money...let's see Accurascale pounds/dollars/euro's has a nice ring to it :yes:

Both Cawood packs ordered. 
An 18 wagon rake is just about right.

I was much amused by the RAILS e-mail I received advertising the latest releases, the first paragraph read  ;  

 

"Accurascale today announces all new PFA packs and gypsum container accessory packs including the very popular low level nuclear waste, Cawood coal and white British Gypsum livery. ...."

 

I never knew that low level nuclear waste was "very popular" !        :rolleyes:

I think we have succeeded where others have failed for many years and make nuclear waste sexy. Who'd have thunk it??

Gone in 9 hours!

Are you doing the LLNW containers on their own?

Hi Ian,

 

They went very quickly indeed but Some retailers will have them so check out their websiteA and get your orders in. As we said we could only do a limited run due to Covid backlogs at the factory but we’re even surprised at how quickly they have gone (along with the Cawoods and even the white gypsum pack)

 

We have no plans to sell the nuclear container as a separate item.

 

Cheers!

Would you sell the Cawood containers separately? If you did, I’d be tempted to buy a three pack of British Fuels, and swap out the BF containers for Cawoods to make a 21 rake. 
I know I said 18 was a good rake, but 21 would be even better!

Hi Fran,

 

I’m not suprised the superb LLW nuke ones have been so popular again and great that they’ve sold out. Amazed at how quickly, that must be some model record. 
As soon as I got the email I messaged my not so local model shop to get my name on the two packs. He had already placed an order and think he knew I’d be after some. It’s good Accurascale are supporting local shops that know their customers well so you don’t miss out. 
 

cheers

Mark

why not buy an extra Cawoods and a British fuels, then swap the containers between the wagons ?


At some point I suspect some horse trading going on, swapping containers and wagons between modellers... by the looks of it, with 21 sets of 3 done, thats 63 unique numbered wagons from 170 wagons now modelled.. so its not as if anyone needs to be short of a unique wagon number in their rake.

You are right. British fuels is out of era for me but I have duplicates of all the original 4 Cawoods sets so will be trying to swap the wagons only with someone who whats a larger uniquely numbered British fuels rake.

I’m the same with Nuclear pfa’s...

 

i got duplicates of the first batch, ordered the new batch last night.

so ive a few duplicate wagons to swap.

 

on the gypsum wagons (i know little about these).. are the containers still in service today on a different wagon, or are they superceded altogether ?

 

I dont have the British fuels version, but an contemplating a few of them, though want to keep moderation.. I shouldnt be in a position of having more pfa’s than MGRs when it comes to coal !

Yes I did consider this, but the OCD kicked in as I didn’t like the idea of pairing certain number wagons with BF containers when I wasn’t sure them wagons Actually did carry British Fuels containers. If I had a definitive list of what Cawood PFA’s went over to BF, I might feel more comfortable selling them on. It sounds a bit crazy but that’s me. Also just how easy it would be to sell mismatched BF’s I’m not sure. They seem to be the least popular of the first run of wagons.

The BFL wagons were 92725/39/85-6/9/93-7/9/800/3/4/6-11/3-6/8/20-3/6/8-36/9-40/5/7-9/51-2/4/7-62/4/6-8/71/4

 

I suspect you won't find any matches, as accurascale have chosen numbers that allow the modelled livery to cover the longest time period.

Thank you for the list. You are correct in suspecting there would be no matches. Never mind.
Come on Lads! Get some Cawoods container 3 packs sold. You’d soon shift those remaining BF Packs.

Actually the British fuels coal container packs are almost gone too. While not quite as popular as Cawoods, they have still sold very well indeed!

 

Cheers!

I’m not surprised Fran. It is a fantastic model. An excellent subject choice on your part. What’s not to love about them?!
I may just buy a BF pack, and hope someone wants a container swap. Failing that get the airbrush out. (I‘d rather not do that but it’s an option in reserve.)
