S-Kits goes ‘leafbusting’

The latest wagon from S-Kits.

Network Rail FEA-F

MODERN 4mm SCALE manufacturer S Kits has expanded its 4mm wagon kit range with the release of the FEA-F single container flat, as pictured above.

Built by Greenbrier Europe and introduced in 2005, they are used by Network Rail on its Railhead Treatment Trains (RHTT) for water jetting/sandite application, to combat leaf fall issues in the autumn period. Note, these are quite different to the vehicles in use with Freightliner, Fastline, GBRf et al.

Consisting of an etched brass fret with whitemetal bogies and other details, the kit is priced £19.50 (Cat Ref. W17) and requires wheelpack WP10 to complete, or four pairs of 9mm disc wheels/bearings. The tank and control modules are to appear at a later date.

S-Kits can be found at 16 Barrow Road, Sileby, Lincolnshire LE12 7LP.
