Cartic 4s got discussed a couple of times at TINGS this weekend, have you got the Etched kit or the plastic?

It is my belief, based on the number of people I know have done this, that plenty of people have the etches in their draw.

They sometimes get them out, look at them, go “hmmm”, and put them away again!


Haha, yes I think that is a correct assessment. It is the etched kit.

It’s a shame to NGS kits are sold out. The combination of IPA with cartic 4s would make a very interesting rake.


I know there was a reason I kept one of these kits in a drawer to build at some point.

This is very true Adam.

I have one, in one of my project draws...Been there 10 years+ ! I will get round to it, one day... However, I wold love to see the kits back in stock once again. This will most certainly give me a kick up the bum to make a start.

I have always thought that they were IZA's with blue ends and the Ford logo on the side, but after much research, they are actually IVA vans. I am guessing they were originally twins? And got converted at some point to singles? Purely for the Dagenham - Halewood - Garston - Mossend car trains.

Hopefully these Flickr links work... https://flic.kr/p/hxfAME

Further research throws up this https://flic.kr/p/bDwBrr

And finally one IVA with CARGOWAGON on the side https://flic.kr/p/bqACVS

I seem to remember that these were built as singles and are about 1 metre longer than the van in the twin sets.

Thank you. Certainly given me something to think about...

Just to warn you @37058 , should your cartic 4 be up to your usual standards, I will immediately start asking for a quote to do me one (if and when the reappear). So best keep completion to yourself  :D
