We haven’t decided any liveries yet but we have a list of potentials.

We’ll share when we are ready to move forward with this.

Cheers Mike

The MTV is a truly inspired choice, but I've already got a rake of STONE MSV Tipplers and I'm trying to work out their provenance.

I know that Foster Yeoman's stone trains evolved from using the Dapol BR Coal Hopper/House Coal Concentration hopper (1970), through MSV (1974) and Farish PGA (1975) to Revolution MTV (1975) and then the TPM/NGS ex steel bogie wagons (1979), before the "modern" fleet was commissioned. As I operate in the early years, MTVs would be a good choice (post 1975) but what routes in particular?

During that evolution the locos used went from hymek/warship to western and 46 to 56 with occasional 33 and 37 haulage, before the 59s came in in 1986.

Also I have only seen pictures of MTVs with large stone chunks e.g. for sea wall defences. Were they favoured for that rather than the MSVs which did aggregate?

Any help would be great.
Bob

Very good news, can gradually build enough of a collection of tank wagons to build a reasonable size 1960's fuel depot
