Yes my understanding is certainly that they’re only FL, as said, FSA outer with FTA inners in permanent sets. They were introduced to replace the older FFA/FGA. I think triples are much rarer these days, they added extra inners to make the quad-sets (having been double or triple originally) and pairs of FSAs.

Looking forward to these!

IIRC they are owned by FL so I'm 99.9% sure that they aren't used by anyone else (or certainly not regularly).

Great news as they are one of the missing links for the last 20 years or so.

Cheers Mike

Minor tangent, but all of this has led to me poring over videos of different container flows to see various compositions. I never even realised there was an FEA-C used by GBRf, which is totally different to the FEA-B (and other 'spine' variants). Too many wagons!

Hi all,

Well I did some asking and @arran I can confirm that the FTA/FSA wagons are all owned and operated by FL, but as is the joys of the railways have been seen behind DB (EWS) locos but that has been when FL have had to hire in locos previously to cover when they had traction shortages but that some time ago!

I assume you meant the KTA/KQA pocket wagon, rather than the FSA/FTAs? The pocket wagons do look good, I'm sure these will too.

Of course we cant even place an order for the FSA's yet.

The KTA/KQA has its own topic to save confusion.

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Wondering how many pedants can dance of the head of a pin.

Hi all

Just to add another point on these (cos I am excited for them but only if....); I have noticed Arran has caveated the original livery (Black) will only happen if there is enough orders.

I am really after pre-privatisation stuff, so hope there are more people like me after the black sets.

HI All

I will have to talk it through with the factory what the min quantity's will be for liveries and numbers, the Black ones ran into the privatized era for a good while looking at pics i have .
