THE LATEST FREIGHT vehicle to be released in Bachmann’s large range of diesel and electric era freight wagons is the 31-tonne OCA steel-sided dropside open. Three liveries make up the initial batch, 38-055 Departmental grey/yellow (Dutch), 38-056 Railfreight red and 8-057 EWS maroon and gold. The RRP is £13.80. The former two vehicles are illustrated here.
The OCA has been a common sight on Britain’s railway network for the last 25 years and Bachmann will hope that its wagon replaces the 1980s-released Cambrian Models kit as the OCA of choice for 4mm scale modellers.
