VDA Vans

The expansion contains over one hundred different versions of the vans divided between four different lots, each constructed with various differences between them. All of the lots are supplied in Maroon and Railfreight Flame Red and Grey livery, with and without white roofs for Rowntrees chocolate traffic and one of the lots also includes the unique all white van for Rowntrees traffic. Each of these lots are subdivided into loaded and empty versions in both almost ex-works condition and downright dirty, each of these versions is then further supplemented by rear versions carrying the once ubiquitous oil tail lamp or where appropriate the early version of battery flashing tail lamp.

CAR Brake Vans

In addition to the VDA vans we have included an air and vacuum piped BR standard 20T brake van to dia. 1/507, TOPS code CAR. The brake van is supplied in twenty four different versions covering Bauxite and Yellow livery along with Railfreight Flame Red and Grey livery. These two types are subdivided into those with smoke from the stove, clean and weathered versions and two different variations of oil tail lamp covering unfitted trains and fitted trains, a single battery flashing tail lamp and no lamps.

Scenarios

To let you experience the wagons in as authentic an environment as possible on the East Coast Main Line of the 1970s/80s we’ve enclosed four scenarios for you to use.

  • 6M64 1852 Haverton Hill - Warrington Arpley - Take this Speedlink working on a part of its journey from Northallerton to York.

  • 6S92 1600 Hull - Aberdeen - 6S92 1600 Hull - Aberdeen speedlink working changed crews under the imposing roof of York Station for the leg between there and Tyne Yard. This evening you find yourself waiting on the platform for 6S92 to arrive from the south so you may relieve the crew and take the train forward.

  • 7E73 0402 Millerhill - Whitemoor - A run south from Tyne Yard to York with this early morning trunk working. The weather has turned wintery and considerable traffic conveying confectionary from Rowntrees’ site at Coxlodge to the York factory has been added at Tyne Yard.

  • 7S66 1750 Tees Yard - Stranraer - Another evening run with this working from Tees to Stranraer between Ferryhill and Tyne Yard.
