From a loco point of view, my most wanted is 59/0 & 59/1, however I'm sure Dapol will eventually shrink their forthcoming OO one.

I'd find it very difficult to resist an 89 in either original IC or Swallow livery.

Most of the wagons I want are achievable in kit or 3D print versions, however if rtr versions were available, I would commit to buying, as I don't get much time to kit build.  Any of the below I'd definitely purchase :

VDA Van - can't believe Bachmann haven't shrunk their OO version
OTA Timber wagon - available as a kit
PWA UKF Fertiliser bogie vans - 3D print available, and I've got one in the "to do" pile
PHV ICI Hopper wagons - 3D print available
PBA Tiger China Clay bogie wagons (possible link up with Kernow?)
JGA RMC Hopper wagons - RFS 1990 version
JHA ARC low track force bogie wagons
PHA Yeoman O&K aggregate wagons - would complement the N Soc ex TPM tippler kits
Holdall Norsk Hydro Ferrywagons
Continental VTG compressed gas bogie tank, to 1:148 scale!!
BOC Tanks
BBA Steel Wagon - Might Cavalex shrink theirs?

Would agree on the wagons and your points that you have raised

I thought the N Gauge VDA had already been announced by Grahame Farish/Bachmann

The kit covers the ex-OCA designs so an ex-VDA OTA shouldn't 'tread on the toes' of the kit (indeed it could complement it).

You didn’t mention the Sfins2 timber carriers Mike! I note the OO gauge announcement has a “soon in N gauge too” footnote, please don’t leave it long!

Ha!

TBH we are just trying to pace things a bit - there are car carriers, Mk5s and 321s in the offing too... plus the flowing silk Pendolinos opening soon...!

cheers

I just went and looked what is outstanding (paid for but still for delivery) from the team, and thank goodness they are being paced. SWMBO would have a fit if they all turned up at once, and I've still to order my mk5's.

I had to resort to setting up a Google sheet to track my Revolution orders as I'd lost track of what I had coming!  :-[

These wagons are a great shout.

I'm with you @Stuart Allen I've got a PWA Van to do and I've just about completed my PBA Tiger, I've also got a PRA to do as well.

Regards

Neal.

I take it the PBA is no longer available on Shapeways?

Was there one on Shapeways?
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”
