    I can confirm there will be no containers sold with these wagons. Appropriate (British made) containers should be released separately, at the same time as these. Hope that helps.

    not supply containers we may not want. This will of course save a bit of cash and those who don't want a particular box wont end up with it
    cluttering a draw. I now have mine pre-ordered and am very much looking forward to what I hope will be a stunning little wagon.
    Thank you very much for the reply and for letting me know. It's very much appreciated.

    I too look forward to seeing this fantastic wagon.

    I imagine not much longer until we see the decorated samples? Hopefully a darker blue to the art work.
    Never understood why other FOC operators have not taken the IDAs on for supermarket work out of Daventry. Especially with the higher leasing costs and track access charges of the Megafrets, IDAs are a very logical 45ft intermodal wagon.

    Thank you for showing the artwork, and great news that samples are not far off.

    The livery sample shall be a much darker blue? (Currently more Megafret light blue) The prototypes appear to be a darker shade than DRS Blue. Yet the level of livery detailing the wagon numbers etc looks superb.

    All four pre-ordered!

    Thanks for asking! We are expecting decorated samples quite soon. I don't have access to the EP photographs at the moment, so In the meantime I've posted an example of the artwork.

    Hello, how are the new IDA wagons coming along, I saw some black ones at a recent show, do you have some decorated DRS blue ones to show off?

    Hopefully some seperate Tesco curtain and high cube containers to go with them.
Working...
