They spent time on the Peak Forest - Northwich service from around 2000 till 2003  IIRC taking over from the 1930s ICI wagons which were withdrawn when the 60s took over due to the older wagons been Vacuum braked which the 60s are compatible with.

The ones used were mostly former Tarmac and Yeoman wagons but IIRC there was a few former Redland wagons mixed in.

Since then I know that VTG own a few so they could be anywhere, although it would not surprise me if they were spotted around Peak Forest mixed in with other wagons like the HOA

400+ for a decent rake though. it's just too much.

a decent block rake of any of the newly produced wagons is going to cost around 300 - 450 now days. i just think that modelling non block-freights or shorter prototype formations is the only feasible option for most modelers - which takes away much of the advantage of n gauge.

PGAs are often still mixed with JGAs (Farish and NGS) and HOAs (Revolution), so a wagon that has always operated in mixed rakes, unusually for anything modern!

Hi Tim,

There are photos on the previous page showing these wagons mixed with others.

These wagons are not just mixed with the JGAs offered by Farish, but the JGAs represented by the NGS kit and the older Farish PGAs which can be picked up second hand.

So there are options for making up a lower cost train. 

But I also think it's too sweeping a comment to simply say 400 is too much.  Different people have different requirements and priorities.

Cheers

Ben A.

How do you know that?  I haven't seen any prices quoted anywhere.

These will no doubt come available for sale six weeks after I finish detailing the rake of them that I already have ! Murphy's third law states that categorically ..............
