The JGA hopper and OCA open debut in ‘N’ gauge.
BACHMANN EUROPE unveiled the first samples of the previously announced Graham Farish OCA drop-sided open wagon and JGA aggregate hopper wagon at its trade event at its Barwell HQ today.
Prototypically, the OCA open is a steel-sided version of the OBA (previously produced by Farish). Almost 400 wagons of this type were built at BREL Shildon, between 1981-1982.
The model will be available in three different liveries: departmental grey/yellow (Cat Ref. 377-550), Rail red (Cat Ref. 377-551) and EWS maroon/gold (Cat Ref. 377-552). These will retail at £10.25 each.
The JGA bogie hopper is used for the conveyance of a multitude of commodities including aggregates, limestone, potash, rock salt and stone.
The model, which feature subtle detail variations depending on the livery, will be available in three different colour schemes: RMC orange (Cat Ref. 377-100), Buxton Lime Industries blue/cream (Cat Ref. 377-101) and Tarmac white/green/yellow (Cat Ref. 377-102). The model will retail at £17.75.
Both vehicles will be available from Bachmann dealers late this year.
