  • Rolling stock for the Class 59s

    For a geologist I do not tend to follow the rolling stock used for sand and aggregate trains - I really should and the 59 model has certainly sparked my interest.
    What rolling stock/wagons are there to go with the 59s out of Merehead with Aggregates Industries, DB Cargo UK and Hanson?

    I bought a 59 National Power and a set of wagons from a well known source. Very expensive but very good. They were a special commission from a competitor who has not put them in their catalogue, so should be easy to replicate.

      Is there any update on what (if any) rolling stock is going to be produced to go with the 59's?

        Hi Neil

        thank you for the reply. Fingers crossed that the discussions become concrete. I know this is in the wrong thread, but if the 59's sell well (I'm sure they will), is there plans to release the 59/0 in Agg Inds and GBRf livery and 59/1 in Hanson?

        many thanks

        I would also seek AI livery along with Hanson. Having only pre-ordered the DBS out of batch 1.

        I hope the JNA/MMA thread has proven useful in choosing a wagon, now over 500 JNA/MMA in the UK which see a lot of Class 59 haulage in MRL livery.

      Was any rolling stock announced for the Class 59 to haul at the recent open day?
