Expected to arrive late Summer 2019

 

While in CPL ownership, many of the 'coaltainers' retained the British Fuels red livery, although a portion of the fleet was repainted green and received the corporate branding of the new owners. Both types were mixed together in rakes.

Specifications:
* Highly detailed, accurate scale model
* Factory-fitted detail parts (brake pipes, lamp irons, etc.)
* Factory-fitted pipework
* Sprung Metal buffers
* Separate, interchangeable containers (three included)
* Fully detailed under-frame (including brake rigging and hangers)
* Blackened metal 12.6mm 3-hole disc wheels on metal axles, RP25.110 profile sets with 14.4mm back-to-backs and 26mm over pinpoints
* NEM coupler pockets fitted with narrow tension lock couplers on flexible mounts to facilitate fixed coupling if desired
* Die-cast chassis for ideal weight
* Designed for easy conversion to EM and P4 gauge track

These are ERA 9. 

 

Coal Products Ltd (CPL) acquired British Fuels in 1999. Whilst in CPL ownership a number of the fleet was repainted green and received this corporate branding.

How long did they last in this livery,or perhaps when did CPL stop using rail?

I think CPL went over to using EWS 'FCA' bogie containers on such traffic that remained; I've seen them at Margam in the last decade or so.

That’s a very good question. The newer era system may or may not be more helpful but it certainly creates confusion unless which era system is specified. Rather like LNER A1s and K1s needing the designer’s name added. (Guess who got excited by the announcement of a K1 only to be a little disappointed.)
