  • JHA (O&K) Improved CAD views

    Here are the latest CAD view of the O&K version JHA.
    A number of improvements and corrections have been made, notably the end slope of the side, the platform is now correct (slimmer), couplings corrected and internal detailing added.
    Regards

    Andy Dapol Looking good! Has it now been confirmed what product numbers shall be what livery?
    Only three minor comments.
    The handlebars look a little over-scale? Are you planning to make these in plastic or separate etch?
    There should be a more dominant crease along the wagon.
    Bogie suspension seems to be different than prototype, yet shall say, likely CAD/angle viewing. Bogie suspension really stands out on the prototype as four sheets trapped in a frame.

        It's currently working through the usual processes. Decorated samples are due within the next 6 weeks.

      I have seen the decorated samples on the hattons website but i wonder if i have missed something. the original press release was for the currently liveried wagons which are in revised FY livery with a large blue band, whereas the decorated samples are of the oringinal livery which are mainly grey/silver with YEOMAN on the side.

        Hi Andy,

        I stand corrected.

        They always looked lighter and shinier than the contemporary 'Railfreight grey' and the 'natural metal' finish seemed to be the trend at the time, following the 59s and aluminium bodied wagons. So I figured the original JHA livery was FY 'silver and blue' like the 59s.
        It was quite a while ago now though, and the things were moving quite well when I used to see them.

        Hi Ian, more of an FYI than a correction , and you are correct a 'natural' finish was in vogue at the time. From the original specifications the actual colour was RAL 7001 cunningly described as 'Silver-Grey'! though it is a solid, rather than metallic paint.
        Also worth note is that the early livery wagons underframe/bogies etc. were RAL Grey-Brown (A sort of dark Chocolate), whilst the late livery were black.

      Hi, Thanks for commenting. I will bring this to the attention of our marketing person.
      For clarity, these are the part number assignments: ('Late' is of course the thick blue band livery with black underframe).

        many thanks andy, that is great. any plans in the near future for the ARC / Hanson / National Power JHA's?

      daz9284 No worries Daz.
      Re: the other wagons, as they are different types each would need to be considered individually. No promises at this stage though.
