Decorated samples of the Accurascale ‘OO’ gauge PFA four-wheel container flat have arrived for evaluation with the manufacturer stating that it now expects to wagons to be released in late September.
The wagon features a die-cast chassis and a choice of coal, gypsum and nuclear waste container designs. The decorated samples are due to receive revisions including correction of the Cawoods yellow and DRS red colours while Accurascale has also identified printing details which require modification before production commences. The tension coupling hooks are also due to be changed on the production models.
In a statement today, Accurascale said: “Our list of corrections has been sent to China and production is well underway, with just corrected decoration and final assembly required before shipping to the UK. As alterations have been required the delivery date is now late September 2019.”
The price is set at £69.95 per triple pack with a choice of Cawoods Coal, British Fuels, British Gypsum and DRS nuclear and an empty set of flats also available.
