HBA/HEA Hoppers

The expansion features both the original HBA hoppers fitted with friction link suspension and the HEA version constructed with or modified with Bruninghaus suspension. In addition to this, both the early body style with a central ladder and small corner supports and the offset ladder configuration to which the vast majority of hoppers were built. Both body styles feature clean and weathered Maroon livery and Railfreight flame red and grey livery variants with the Railfreight livery having its branding in a number of locations. Empty and loaded versions with matching physics also feature in the pack along with rear versions fitted with both an oil tail lamp and on those which were likely to have survived long enough, a battery flashing tail lamp.

CAO/CAP/CAR Brake Vans

In addition to the HBA/HEA hoppers we have included TOPS code CAO (unfitted) and TOPS code CAP (vacuum piped) BR standard 20T brake vans to dia. 1/506, and TOPS code CAR (air and vacuum piped) brake vans to dia 1/507. The brake vans are supplied in different versions covering brown, brown with grey ends, bauxite and yellow livery and  Railfreight Flame Red and Grey liveries. These types are subdivided into those with smoke from the stove, clean and weathered versions and different variations of tail lamp covering, unfitted trains, fitted trains and no lamps. Those vans that were longer lived also feature a version with flashing battery tail lamp.
