Accurascale has revealed that its second British outline ready-to-run wagon will be the Associated Portland Cement Manufacturer’s Cemflo four-wheel cement tankers.
285 were built between 1961-1965 by Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company and later Metropolitan-Cammell to a modified design. Accurascale’s will model the later Met-Cam diagram 6/430 wagons.
The Cemflo wagons are best known for use on cement traffic from Cliffe in Kent to Uddingston in Glasgow which saw them hauled by Kent to York by pairs of Class 33s. They were also seen on flows from Holborough Cement Works in Kent to Widnes in Lancashire. By 1969 they had been moved north and served Eastgate in Durham, Hope in the Peak District and Oxwellmains works near Dunbar amongst others. Traction included classes 25, 26, 27, 31, 33, 37, 40, 45, and 47 as well as BR ‘9F’ 2-10-0s and Gresley ‘A4’ 4-6-2s.
Production of the model has been aided by measuring of the last surviving example owner by Darlington Railway Preservation Society and CAD drawing work is now complete. Delivery is expected in late October 2018 for pre-TOPS wagons with TOPS liveried vehicles arriving in December 2018. Prices are set at £73.95 for triple packs (seven pre-TOPS and six TOPS numbered packs) and £25.95 for single wagons.
