Now do I order some Yeoman wagons1372033950_westbury28.png.7b0280a6323173be7e85fbc3a7802704.png1299293096_westbury29.png.28b28ec9bedb8dfaee1ed84cde7a4d9c.png

 

Or is it possible I could just buy 1 arc wagon with no bogies please!

Great photos!

 

That last shot at Whatley is of a PXA. As mentioned on page 16, these are 'same same but different'!

 

PXA on the left, PTA on the right.

I was aware that it was not the same type, but it is nice to see both types next to each other 

I just like the idea for a small repair area, but probably using an old Lima model would be a cheaper option and leave these wagons in a working train. Luckily have some Lima wagons from when they were around £5 each new!

Agreed!

 

Your photo reminds me, I need to add the distinctive supports that were used to rest the PTAs on when bogies were being swapped to my 'todo' backlog for Whatley. There are some good photos of them from inside the wagon repair workshop in the Rolling Stone video.

P.S. The Lima wagons are accurate for the Immingham wagons  but they look quite different from the ones Accurascale are doing (the body profile, flush solebar, bogies and ribs make them look quite different). From Huw Millington's Flickr:

As I recall, the Lima bogies are closer to 3.5mm rather than 4mm scale as well...

Yes, they are very under-nourished!

A quick question, I notice that there is no 'leg' on the couplers, unlike Kadee's, so just wondering how they are opened?

 

many thanks

I regularly use Kadee with the leg cut off. They split when you lift one up.

 

PTAs run as fixed rakes so no need for shunting.

Correct. As they’re run in fixed rakes the leg is being left off as per prototype. They’re in NEM sockets though so can be replaced if you wish.

 

Cheers!

The coupler pin would be too high to use anyway without much stronger than normal magnets.

 

Kadees are designed for HO. In the case of the PTAs in OO, the body mounting position of the couplers in the prototype location as Accurascale are planning is several mm higher.

For the sake of clarity, each 'set' of 5 fixed wagons, has a regular NEM socket at each outer end.

Not the ARC/Yeoman ones. they were regulary shunted around and other wagons added / removed, such as PHAs.

Only the ‘outer’ packs though, right?

correct.

At regular height. All inners are in NEM sockets too but are at a prototypical height.

Hi slg,

 

Indeed, slipped my mind to post these pics up on here last week!

 

So, for those of you who don't do Facebook, here are some progress shots of our wagons in production. Tampo and painting is under way before finally assembly. We're also getting the boxes for both the PTA and JSA packs sorted design wise. :)

Cheers!
