C Rail PFAs and Half containers
« on: March 05, 2018, 04:30:21 pm »
I have a batch of C Rail PFA wagon kits I have acquired, a few are part built and a few have parts missing, something to sort out and I plan to contact C Rail about spares. I have a big question though.

These are for the Coal contaiers, a couple included in this batch of bits but I would like to make a rake of these -

A couple of questions -
Are these the same wagons/version?
Are the half size containers available anywhere?

Best wishes
Simon

Yep, same wagon.

You might get lucky on Shapeways. Or, should be fairly easy to bash some. You probably know that those boxes are used to transport low-level waste - lab coats, PPE, etc.

Yes, they are the same PFAs.

Containers available from my Shapeways shop: http://shpws.me/ERBR There are 1/2 height and 1/3 height LLW containers and also a version with a sloping roof though I've only done one version (1/3 height IIRC but could be the half height!)

Cheers, Mike
