Here's a shot of the Modellbahn Union 1:160 ferry wagons behind a 1:148 Dapol class 33. I've put a couple more over on my Steinheim thread rather than hijack this one any further, but this picture gives you a good idea of the relative heights.

I've just received two reefers and a box van. As the above picture shows, they do look a little small compared to the 1;148 locos; but the detail and overall finish is excellent. I hope to be running them in the ferry van train that I mainly scratchbuilt a few years ago-but I've yet to compare then sizewise with the 1:148 vans.

They do look small against a 1;160 van and tank I've got, but then that's prototypical, as the Berne loading gauge is so much bigger than the BR one.

Overall, I'm very pleased with them; it would be nice to get some Epoch 111 wagons to go with them!
