Nice wagon and certainly a welcome addition in 2mm, but personally I would like to see the Mermaids released in Dutch first also what is happening with the Turbot? Not overly fussed about the shark, as I have 2 NGS models.

Cheers

All very nice, but such is the backlog of DJM promises that I'd prefer they started delivering on all the outstanding items first.

Cheers,
Alan

I think it's fairer to view DJM's project list not as promises but as proposals to be actioned as and when finance, opportunity and customer interest permit

Regardless why keep adding to the bottom of the list when nothing's coming off the top!

I admit to being responsible, against my own judgement, for replacing one of the last HUO workings in the Midlands with MGR HAA wagons. The coal flow to the one-time British Celanese plant at Spondon was the last regular trainload HUO working in the Nottingham Division in about 1980. Sad to see this impressive unfitted working bite the dust.

What was the geographical reach of these wagons?

They went everywhere. Kent coalfield in the South East. The whole of South Wales. Midlands. North East. North West. Scotland. Harder to find somewhere they never appeared.

Much obliged, Mike.

So Central Scotland - Ayrshire - WCML all fair game?

IMHO any announcement of new items is good news - especially when it comes from outside the top 2, then it's GREAT news. It means the hobby is alive and thriving. So I'm happy to wish this latest crowdfunding project every success. :thumbsup:

East Anglia?

If they did appear here, I might be in.

So not west of Brighton and south of Bristol then?
I have to say I've never seen any - but I never went looking for them either.

My aggregate wagon of choice would be a "proper" PGA hopper.
