IKA MEGAFRET Twin Container Wagons - Due Q4 2019

IKA MEGAFRET Container Wagons

Previous model shown for illustrative purposes only.

IKA Megafret wagons were designed for the transport of containers on UK W9 loading gauge routes. This included 96 high cube containers which were increasing their share of the container market. The wagon was built by Arbel Fauvet in France and the first batch were delivered to Freightliner in 2001. Subsequent batches have been delivered for use by EWS and DRS where they are used primarily for transport to and from major container ports and the Channel Tunnel.

YCV Turbot Bogie Ballast Wagons - Due Q4 2019

YCV Turbot Bogie Ballast Wagons

Previous model shown for illustrative purposes only.

The Turbot bogie ballast wagon was a development from the earlier Bogie Bolster E wagon, which was manufactured in the 1960s and was intended for the transfer of steel. The wagon, however, after a number of years in use was found to be too short for the continuation of its intended role, but it was found that if a low sided three door body was added, then this new wagon would to be suitable for transporting ballast. The wagon was nicknamed Turbot and was TOPS classified as YCV bogie ballast wagon. Over 1,000 Turbot wagons were rebuilt by BR Shildon and RFS Engineering at Doncaster between 1982 and 1988 and continued into service until 2002. Turbot wagons have also been modified for use by London Underground.
