Rail transport is well� suited to the haulage of bulk loads over significant distances. BR developed new wagons in the 1970s, focusing on the efficient haulage of bulk loads, using higher capacity wagons to reduce the� empty vehicle weight. Combined with new designs of frames and quick acting air brakes the new� and longer� 4-wheel� and 100-ton bogie wagons� can travel safely� at higher train speeds, reducing transit time. An increase in wagon leasing by customers and traffic from Europe has also seen the reappearance of bright advertising liveries on many types of wagons.
Bachmann OO RNA Nuclear Flask Barrier Wagon 38-007
Model of a BR HEA type household coal hopper wagon in railfreight flame red and grey livery lettered with TOPS code RNA as a wagon in use as a barrier wagon for nuclear flask trains.

In the 1980s the drop in house coal consumption made a large number of the air braked HEA coal hopper wagons surplus. Some of these were put to use as barrier wagons for the dedicated nuclear flask trains, one coupled between the flask wagon(s), the locomotive and guards' brake van.

Wagons allocated to these duties were relettered with TOPS code RNA to make them identifyable from the still active HEA hoppers in coal service.
The barrier wagons' hopper doors were often unservicable, sealed or removed, making them unsuitable for coal loading. In some cases the bodywork was later removed and replaced with ballast weights.

The Southern Railway constructed a number of bogie brake vans to provide smooth riding vans for guards on express goods and parcels trains. Initial examples being rebuilt from redundant electric unit parcels cars these vans ride like a coach, in additon to having good weight and an efficient brake.

Many of these vans survived in BR ownership, latterly with the engineering departments who appreciated the combination of a mess/riding van and tool storage in the verandahs either end. Several examples were still in service at privatisation and passed into the ownership of EWS, receiving the companys' maroon & gold paint.

Brake vans were not normally needed on goods trains, however trains of especially dangerous goods including nuclear flask trains conveyed a brake van so the guards would not have to pass the hazardous cars in the event of a derailment. Many vans were also usefully employed as riding vans for train crews and shunters, coupled to  class 08 shunting locomotives.

These long-wheelbase air braked box vans were developed to speed up British Rail's goods trains. Designed to travel safely at 60mph and carry significantly more load than the traditional box van, the VAA design from the mid-1970's marked the start of the modernisation of the British goods wagon fleet.

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 38-140IG VDA Covered Box Van Army Green Internal User
South/South West region exclusive model - will be available from our Plymouth store.

The VDA first started to appear around 1974, and were built with an external frame on the ends with no end ventilator and hinged centre doors and separate quarter doors at the outer ends. These could carry 31 tons at speeds of up to 60 mph but this was reduced to twenty one tons for speeds up to 70 mph. This proved to be one of the more successful designs and remained very much in demand throughout the 1990's, including internal use for the British Army to transfer stock around different depots. Their ease of access makes them ideal for loading and unloading with fork lift trucks etc. They are believed to be the most common type of air braked van built by BR.

Bachmann 38-625 model of a pair of BR FGA Freightliner container flat outer wagons.
New model announced 2014.

These were the first type of container flat wagons built by British Rail and formed into sets of wagons, each wagons being designed to carry 3 20-foot containers. As these formations of (usually) five wagons were intended to be fixed formations the outer wagons were fitted with side buffers and conventional couplings at one end only. The inner end of the wagons and both ends of the inner wagons had fixed bar couplings which were intended to be uncoupled only at repair depots.

The Freightliner flat models feature details such as linkage, pipe work, close couplings, in-board disc-brake detail and sprung buffers. For fixed rake operation the models feature fixed bar couplings between wagons with standard tension lock couplings in NEM pockets at the outer ends. The wagon deck is of die-cast metal construction, giving weight and stability to the vehicle.

To model this arrangement Bachmann are producing the outer FGA wagons as a pair, with separate inner wagons being produced to create a longer 'set' to match the train length space available.
Each wagon length approx 260mm/10.25in.

Model 38-651A Pricing and release to be confirmed

A new deatiled model of the Metalair design pressure discharge bulk powder tank wagons used principally for bulk cement traffic. The developing technologies for pressure discharge systems and lining of wagons with materials promoting the clearing of the load allowed the design of self-clearing bulk powder wagons to be simplified. These cylindrical tanks replaced the BR Presflo covered hoppers and chevron style tank wagons in cement service.

This model is painted in a plain grey scheme, a colour which helped disguise cement spillages. Many of these wagons were owned by leasing companies, so were given a plain livery so that a change of leasor would not require extensive repainting.

Dapol OO Gauge FEAB Spine Wagon Container Flat Pair 640221 + 640222 Freightliner Livery 4F-044-005.

FEA-B spine wagons were one of a range of seven FEA type wagons designed for the transport of iso containers. FEA-B wagons were constructed around a central spine of which substantial outriggers were constructed which housed the standard twist lock container fixings.
The FEA-B generally ran in pairs (usually with consecutive running numbers), semi-permanently coupled via a bar coupling. Introduced in March 2003 and built by Wagony Swidinica in Poland, in total 301 wagon pairs have been delivered. The main operator has been Freightliner, although smaller quantities have been delivered to Balfour Beatty (modified for sleeper transportation) and Jarvis Fastline, which were subsequently sold on to DRS in 2010.

The Dapol OO Gauge FEAB Spine Wagon features:
  • Pair of FEA-B spine wagons with containers
  • Finely moulded body with many separately added details
  • Finely applied livery with accurately printed detail
  • Profiled wheels
  • NEM pockets with self-centring couplings

    The wagons are designed to run in permanently coupled pairs, with each wagon having standard coulings and drawgear at one end only, freeing up clear deck space to accomodate the 45-foot containers in a similar wagon length as is used by a single wagon carrying one 40-foot container.
