These are the liveries we are proposing:

VTG/Murco red:



VTG Conoco blue:



VTG grey:



Freightliner green:



EWS pale grey (subject to permission):



We are also proposing triple packs, with different wagon numbers, in the popular liveries and in the rather eye-catching colours of Greenergy as mentioned in the text above:



This map shows roughly where the various wagons flow, to help anyone who models a particular location to decide which they need, though of course for such widespread wagons rule 1 can apply.  And they have all travelled through the south of England as they arrived via the Channel tunnel:



cheers

Wow - they look amazing. I'm up for at least 6 and depending on timing maybe a few more. Couple of questions regarding liveries. Can they (prototypically) be mixed (colours, brands) etc.? The weathering option mentioned on the website is intriguing - do they have top located valves which give oily stains down the sides and will this be modelled? The thing I don't like about the current Farish weathered TEAs is that there is no sign of any oil anywhere!

Good choice!

Why not do a prototypical 32 wagon bulk pack for £750?   :o

Hi all,

In answer to the question about mix of liveries.

I have observed the VTG grey and blue ones mixed up together, and mixed with the Freightliner green ones which nowadays have been rebranded VTG.

DB Schenker also operate some of the ex-Freightliner green ones as this photo we took at Kingsbury shows:

 (Photo by Tom Smith with kind permission of DB Schenker)

The Greenergy ones so far operate on their own, though the original consists of Blue-Blue-green-Blue-Blue-Green-etc is now more random; the proportion of blue:green remains at 2:1, but the actual position of the wagons in the train has changed, probably as a result of cuts of wagons separated out due to limited siding lengths.

 (Photo courtesy Greenergy)

The red VTG ones seem to operate on Murco traffic mixed in with the Arbel-built versions (a different type to ours) and the older Murco liveried wagons of which there is a 3D print available.

I hadn't thought about a full rake of 32 for £750 - any takers?

cheers

Ben A.

Hi Ben thanks for all the info, I am rule one so seriously thinking they would look good on my proposed layout. Interestingly I already have the EWS class 60. I also would like to know the length of the full rake in N.

ONLY ONE RULE ENJOY

Hope you get the go ahead for the EWS Grey as I would really like a set of these with the odd VTG Grey thrown in. Otherwise VTG Grey would do.

I'd like the idea of a full rake price.

Around 3.8 metres (give or take a bit ;) ).

I don't have a room than long, never mind a layout.  :confused1:

Hi Ben/Mike,

Excellent choice of prototype, something Pete and myself were chatting about at the Basingstoke show a couple of weeks ago. Whilst VTG/Murco red is my local version, my first choice would be the EWS version if produced. I would be interested too in weathered versions as you requested opinions on the website.

I suspect 10 on my order ( 2 packs of 5 or 3 x 3 pack plus one) will the singles be numbered differently to the multipacks???

Regards,
Stu from EGDL.

Cool! I did not realise they carted tea around in tankers!  ;)


Wait till you see the new Nescafe Tankers, they come with sweetners.

Where's my coat lol


Just out in N from Arnold is a Nescafé hopper registered with Ermewa.

Hello all,

Stu:  Yes, the singles will be numbered differently.  Our website graphics show the actual wagon numbers we are planning.  Also, we are producing a rub-down sheet featuring a wide variety of TOPS panels so you can have differently numbered wagons if you wish.  The only difficulty is that some of the wagons have repeater numbers on the roofs, but these are tiny and would be illegilble in N without a glass.

On another note, although the Kingsbury trains comprise 32 wagons I don't believe this is universal and shorter rakes are in use depending on the siding lengths available at the terminal.  I think that the Dalston train, for example, comprises 12 wagons split into two cuts of six at the terminal for unloading.

cheers

Ben A.

I wonder if you'd find an N gauge loco that could pull 32 of those round the average layout curve?  :worried:
