You’re pleasing us Cornish modellers.  We’ll need 20 at least for our club layout!  I see that our friend Craig has been providing you with the necessary photographic material.  He’s a brilliant photographer and can provide you with loads of information.

A brief update on our CDA wagon project which is also in tooling alongside our HAA hopper wagon. Here are a couple of livery images of the English China Clays Ltd livery which will no doubt prove to be a popular choice for modellers.

Keep an eye out for more updates on the other versions of our CDA plus how these wagons can be pre-ordered.

They look brilliant.

 

One question - On the 3 D image I can't see the 'drainage' slots on the wagon sides and ends. Will the finished models have these?

 

 

Good evening John,

 

Thank you for your kind words. Yes the finished models will have the drainage slots which can be seen in the 3D render images which we have just posted.

 

Hope that helps.

Good news, but I have a couple of questions.

 

How come the DB ones are only available as singles? Expected lack of popularity vs the coal and ECC variants?

 

And I presume the singles from KMS and Trains4U will be different numbers given they are said to be exclusive on the forms?

 

Neither are a massive issue to me as I expect to purchase a small selection of each rather than a big rake as they aren't really in region for me but I like them but was intrigued.

So KMS & Trains4U are atm only doing one running number each for the DB variant which may change to more if the demand exists?

Why don't you both sell one unnumbered instead of just one with a number and leave everyone to buy as much as they like so they can then apply their own running numbers post sale, or would that not work?...just spit balling.
