HI All

I've not seen a sheet break down yet but it will include the numbers on  the affected wagons, its getting produced by Railtec so i will be suggesting they have another sheet available to order with additional wagon numbers.

The sheet will be free to those that have wagons and wont to update .

Regards Arran

Thanks Arran,

I would like a sheet with additional numbers as well as for the original numbers.

Have all the wagons now been shipped?

Best regards

Iain

Hello all,

I feel Arran’s pain on this!

I collected my wagons at Warley but didn’t have time to look at them during the show.

When I got home and noticed the livery error I looked at previously posted images of the deco sample and realised it was correct; so it is not as if the artwork sent to China was wrong, or approval was given when it shouldn’t have been.

In this Arran has been exceptionally unlucky, and I think his response is fair and proportionate, and I look forward to acquiring some of the decals to correct the TOPS and other data panels.

In theory Arran could send all the models back to China and demand they be reprinted, but with so many delivered this is just unrealistic.   I’d much rather fix the problem here than return mine and wait for months!

Through tucked away somewhere I think I have some rub-down transfers from when I designed a kit for this wagon about a decade ago...!

Cheers

Ben A.

My pack of STS branded PCAs arrived yesterday (although to the billing address rather than the different delivery address!).

I've only had time for a quick look so far but first impressions are that it's a stunning wagon; easily on a par with the Revolution Class B tanks or KFA container wagons. Fingers crossed we eventually get a PCA V tank to the same standard so I can retire my Farish models

The rolling stock section of the 2020 model of the year is going to be very difficult to choose from with the KFA, PCA, Sturgeon and who knows what else to choose from.

Absolutely awesome wagons.  They may even have knocked the Class B tanks off the top position in best ever four wheeled wagon...

I've just ordered 15 of these, 12 STS and 3 Rugby (I've seen photos of mixed rakes in the late 80's, perfect for me).

Question:

The STS I believe only have 3 unique numbers, does anyone know where I can buy appropriate number transfers for these wagons?
Just call me Ted, or Edward... or Ed.

Just not Eddie.
