Apologies if it has already been discussed in the thread, but can anyone advise me, which would be the best option of these wagons to use for a Manchester 'Binliner' from the late 90s to around 2015. If I remember correctly it ran to Roxby.
I'd seen Freightliner locos on this working, so was going to opt for the Freightliner version, but I seem to also remember EWS and Load Haul on this working.

I think Vonzack has a couple of different types on Shapeways.

In a similar vein I was wondering which of the two would be closest to the ones used on the flow from Knowsley to Roxby via Wigan Wallgate.

@The Cuckoo, I think the Version 5 or 6 KFAs would be a best fit for you if you want to model the 'Binliner'. These tend to be so filthy though, you really can't make out any branding from pictures.

I think the flows you and @jpendle are talking about come through York and they are generally 16 wagons, I haven't seen it recently, but there has been an FEA-B used to replace two of the KFAs, so that makes it a bit different.

Cheers.

@Spanners70 if you get it in quick then I haven't taken them off sale yet as I've been busy with other things, but it will be off sale later today.

Cheers, Mike

Do the 3DR RHTT modules fit directly onto the Revolution KFA's?

I'd be very surprised if they didnt. I've moved mine from the dapol spines to the 3d version and back again. No problems.

cheers

Aren't the Dapol spine wagons the ones with the outriggers in the wrong location? I know there was a lot of fuss about correcting them in 4mm.

As to whether the RHTT modules will fit - if they are the correct length with pins in the right place (and small enough) then they'll fit, otherwise the locating pins might need removing.

Cheers Mike

Yes they're either evenly spaced and shouldn't be, or they aren't evenly spaced and they should be. I forget which!

Sure it'll be easy enough to resolve - I use a bit of Tacky Wax or similar to keep containers in place, and once you're doing that the actual mechanical fixing lugs are largely immaterial.

For those who have ordered the Network Rail Black with yellow bogies might like one of these as a dedicated load. :D
