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

Cheers

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

Thread resurrection....

Looking at all the Revolution announcement material on these, it is clear three different versions of wagon are in development. There is no direct mention on livery however, apart from sample pictures showing the “current STVA Red”.

@Ben A / @red_death : Is there a plan to offer the older grey livery for the twin flats?

I admit it is a totally selfish question from me as they appently arrived in the U.K. in grey in 1992 / 1993 (my era).

This wil help with budgeting  :thumbsup:

And any idea when the order book may open? I remain excited by the prospect of a rake of the covered 4-car sets!

Edit: dammit, I just became one of the pesterers!

We're just trying to work out a couple of final changes to the CAD before we can open the order book - best guess is that we'll open the order book next month.

White livery - hopefully.

Cheers M

Thanks Mike, I promise given your answer I will await the order book and not pester anymore....

Wasn’t my intention to pester, I did try and read available material.

No, sorry, that wasn't my intended implication at all! I just try and avoid the "is it ready yet" type posts, and realised that mine was exactly one of those!

Yours was a wholly legitimate enquiry!

Oh I see!  :doh:

Well, in which case no offence taken and happy to carry on good sir  :D

I also wish to avoid “is it ready” questions, especially when Mike and Ben so issue regular newsletters  :thumbsup:

Caught at Banbury yesterday:






Probably 20 wagons, in a rake with as many Arbels:

They look like Jaguar XFs on the IPAs, so presumably it’s F-Types and posh things in the Arbels!

Really looking forward to these! Must build my Arbels too.

Yeah, we are looking forward to these too!

EP1 samples of the HOA hoppers will appear first, then these will follow.

cheers

...

Good spot! :admiration: It was interesting to see some of the bits of protection/packaging on the cars - I've seen Minis loading onto [into?] Arbels and they have almost no external packaging, but they are smaller so a lower risk of bumping it. :beers:
