The previous grey hopper was mundane enough to blend into the background and a good idea so I would definitely support something similar like a simple brown/grey standard van/tube wagon/hopper/tank as suggested.

The only downside is that you have to keep a low profile at exhibitions as Nobby stalks the floor searching for unwary forum members to pounce on to shift surplus stock.  :D

OK, I think we should have a FLUOERO WAGON, with NGF sides.

It's just a wagon!

As the saying goes 'It's an awful job but someone has to do it' :)

I've only voted 'Possibly' as it depends what the wagon itself is. I don't want a mug as I already have a forum mug and my eldest sister insists on buying me Emma bloody Bridgwater mugs for any occasion. There's only so many mugs a man can take/store!

Ha, I find dropping them / knocking them off the kitchen table solves that problem  :smiley-laughing:

Actually, I got a crap commemorative mug from my employer, and gained a brief moment of joy and catharsis by hurling it at the garage wall with as much vigour as I could muster.

never got a mug from my last employer, but did come in to work one christmas eve to find our contracts manager had been in that day and left a box of 12 bottles of lager 'for the lads as a thank you for their work this year'.

lads =
1 x site manager
2 x receptionists
2 x day supervisors
6 x day officers
2 x night supervisors
2 x night officers
2 x relief officers

thanks but no thanks, and a merry christmas to you too.

Just voted yes, but perhaps a few? models that we could choose from, as I would certainly not be buying any hopper wagons or modern image, for me I would like a van or coal wagon.

THREAD HIJACK !!!!

Who doesn't love a quality mug...



Back on track (see what I did there?) a ferry van similar to the NGS type of thing could also work.

The only mug I would be interested in is the kind of lidded insulated mug exhibitors use at exhibitions (Ah....exhibitions....remember them?) I think an NGF mug like that would be pretty cool and a visible advert for NGF that is somewhat bigger than a wagon!

I certainly would be interested in a couple of them, if they had metal wheels and ideally NEM pockets, As i don't want to have to replace plastic wheels for metal ones and spend more money upgrading wagons I have just purchased. NEM pockets again ideally, although have lots of conversion kits so could convert them.

Dapol minimum quantities is 100 of any type of wagon they currently produce and work out at very good value. and should come out at around £10 a waggon depending on the level of complexity of the printing on the side.
