I'm not sure you would see X-types mixed with Evoques. First gen Evoques were launched 2011 by which time the X-type had been phased out (2009).   Jag's range when the Evoque was in production would consist of the XF (2007 ->) which was facelifted in 2012.  Oxford do a model of post facelift cars suitable for 2012 to ~2017.  Oxford also produce the XJ new shape which must have been launched circa 2010/1, plus the XK which had been around for a few years by this stage.  They also produce F-paces and F-types which were launched a few years later.

 

Sorry bit of a Jag fan although not sure i'll be buying another as they are becoming a bit generic like everyone else's cars now.

 

 

 

Pretty sure the X-type was conveyed in the WIA, not open wagons, so yeah, no need to model those.

The smaller (lower) vehicles fit in the WIA. Big Range Rovers etc don’t fit.

Will they come in several running numbers?  If they do, I’ll have several of each.

Hi all,

 

Moorseby: No, not yet.  We will open the order book once we have been able to confirm products and prices.

 

Jools1959:  Yes, as usual we will expect to offer different numbersets for each livery variation.

 

cheers

Don't know how I missed this at DEMU! Definatley of interest to me, credit card will get a bashing I think!

 

As some additional info if a full rake isn't feasable, they could be found on the Enterprise workings out of Southampton to Scotland. They were workings that were of interest to me before they ceased, as they could vary in length and type of wagon. This info is applicable for the mid-2010's.

 

The wagons, amongst others such as double deck types, would be used for moving imported Renault vans and cars from Southampton Western Docks. The working ran as 6X44 to Eastleigh Yard, and normally had intermodal flats as well. For a short time, HEA's loaded with dredged pea shingle were in the mix too. The trip workings from Fawley Refinery and Marchwood MOD (if either ran) would be added on, and the whole lot went forward as 6X38 to Didcot. From Didcot, it went forward as 6X65 to Mossend via Warrington and Carlisle. I think Warrington is where an electric loco would be attached. The workings seemed to run as an 'X' if the car wagons were loaded, though didn't always happen. Otherwise the workings were 6B44, 6V38 and 6M65.

 

Normally a DB Class 66 was used, however it wasn't unknown to find a Class 60 on the trip workings. This was during the time when DB had based one at Eastleigh to be used as a 'Super Shunter'. Class 67's may have been used as well, can't say I saw any though.

 

Wagons would return on 6V15 from Mossend to Didcot, and then onwards to Eastleigh as 6O15. The trip to the docks ran as 6B43. A search of Flickr using the headcodes yeilds some results. As an aside, I believe 6X44 was also the headcode used for the car train from Dagenham to Didcot, which also joined onto 6X65.

 

Also, I can't say I've seen 6M66 run with covered IPA's. They were normally the open or stathed type as the working would convey imported Ford Transits, as well as other Ford cars.

 

Here's a few pictures!

As someone who is now completely out of touch with train operations, does the X in the train description indicate a train where the direction of travel has to be reversed at some point to get the vehicles the correct way round for unloading?

Not quite; more one that mustn't deviate from its designated route with Control's consent to avoid it arriving facing the wrong way, or sending it past structures where it might be out-of-gauge (this latter applies most noticeably to MoD trains conveying 'Warrior' armored vehicles, which have been known to remove platform valancing)

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for the post - really informative and plenty of really helpful detail.  I particularly love the shot of the 66 with the loaded single twin pair.

 

cheers
