    Good find, will be interesting to have a flick through that tomorrow if it's quiet at work

    Hi whilst looking for information on IHA wagons, came across this document for Tata steel suppliers, hope it is of interest. http://www.tatasteelsuppliers.com/st...0Standards.pdf
    On a recent trip to Zagreb saw what seems to be a longer version from the office window (conveniently overlooks a marshalling yard). Click image for larger version

    These are rather close to what Dapol already produce for modelbahn. They may be to 1:160 but when mixed in with a rake of either the Farish BYA/BRA wagons or Dapol's own JSA wagon they look the part.
    I have a dozen or so Modellbahn Union, Shimmns/Sfhimmns Sliding Tarp Steel Product wagons. The packaging is marked 'N Gauge' rather than 'N Scale'. I've only ever measured them by eye and, aged as my eyes are, they confirm N gauge.

    I'd like to see Dapol release GE Leasing liveried models in the UK, but perhaps their agreement with Modellbahn Union precludes that.

    There are a few different versions, but here's a link to a site with good reference pictures - http://gingespotting.smugmug.com/Wag.../IHA/i-jZfWFqw

    Hi, yes Vonzack I think it is the IHA wagons, unfortunately Joel I don't have a picture of the wagons I see going through Wrexham.

    Sorry Joel, not for post-war silver livery - but still looking.

    I knew there was one I forgot how about the PWA fertiliser wagon, I was always fond of the Lima models when I was younger and I think they'd compliment your silver bullet wagons nicely on West Country themed layouts and they also featured quite often on the WCML.

    HI Bert, do you have any pictures? I would love to do them if we can.

    I'd agree with the suggest for wagons to go behind the upcoming 59, PHA, JHA, PTA, and the farish PGA is in need of an upgrade. How about the Redlands self discharging train?

    I'd also love some car transporter wagons particularly the double deck variety like the PLA/JLA Procor 80 or the Cartic-4 with some 1990s cars.

    How about some LPG tank wagons like the TTV. Or just some improved petrol tank wagons, the upcoming TEA wagons by Revoloution look great but are not my era, something for an 80s/90s layout would be fantastic.

    And there are other wagons for China clay traffic such as the PBA, JIA

    just a few ideas there are others I can think off but not sure of their TOPS code such as the 4 wheel cargo-waggon.
