Ah right thanks I thought it was something not on the container sets, as in a special part that finishes the look off when no containers are on. Mine have that already.

 

correct - we have packs of the part available on request should you wish to mount other 20' containers on the PFA

On a slightly unrelated note.

To back up a previous request - 36 gypsum boxes have been acquired to populate a matching number of 60' platforms for another project.

 

Really looking forward to seeing that when put together Mick. The gypsum containers have sold quite well it must be said!

 

Cheers,

 

Fran

The original white containers ran on Tiphook 60’ foot flats to the British Gypsum 40’ foot ones arrived!

Well enough to consider another run with different numbers? ;-}

Yes perhaps but I was thinking more along the lines of this.

Sorry, just realised I can click through to the Flickr site, which states in the caption that it is at Dalston, along with the date: 6 July 2012,  The viewpoint is closer to the oil sidings than some I've seen, which is useful.

We are certainly looking into new load variations to go on our PFAs. 

 

Cheers!

I'd be keen for some of the more weird and wonderful containers that go on the DRS ones.

I seem to remember that the Cawood containers were used for coal to export to Ireland.  There’s plenty of pictures and information about the containers here in the UK but when they arrived in Ireland, were they forwarded by rail or on the back of a HGV?  If they went by rail, does Accurascale do the appropriate wagons for them?

They mainly went on the backs of HGVs but were transported for a time on flat wagons. We don’t do the appropriate wagon yet...

Hi Fran,

 

The high containers would be good for the occasional workings to Hull.

 

cheers

I'll take 20. Or 21 if you insist on packs of three. :good_mini:

I just love the site of a short rake of empties behind a 37. 8FBF0A5A-6676-47DC-8033-4D3A0D4FAEC8.jpeg.f8191096e603b88912f8b637ee6b4572.jpeg

If anyone’s after a low level nuclear pack Paul at Alton Model Centre had a set on display still.

 

Think they had a British gypsum pack and British fuels red on display also.

Ali
