Dapol HAA and HEA hoppers

BR air braked coal hoppers. Starting with the HAA bulk coal 'merry-go-round' hoppers British Rail adopted the air train brake system for new high capacity wagons. These wagons were also intended to run at higher speeds, reducing rail freight transit time. The HEA design was used for domestic coal distribution, with improved suspension engineering suitable for running at 60mph on Speedlink services with the long wheelbase open wagons and vans.
Model of wagon 351351 with blue painted hopper framing. Era 7-8, TOPS to privatisation.
HAA hoppers were produced for the mass transport of coal from colliery to power station in a non stop loop known as `Merry Go Round Operation’, this led to the wagon being known as MGR wagons. Over 11,000 of these 32T hoppers were manufactured for BR mainly at Shildon between 1964 and 1965.
