Just Delivered! A Limestone Hopper Train!

Famous Trains now has a train of eighteen modern bogie limestone hopper wagons, which is hauled by our new Class 70 Co-Co diesel. The wagons have been produced by Dapol. They are heavy, and are the freest-running model wagons we have experienced. We thought our sidings were level, but these wagons move off on their own! The train in this picture, operated by Freightliner Heavy Haul, is approaching and then passing through our scale model of Chinley station.
