    MM Supertrain Mk2Ds

    I wonder why this batch weren't finished in a darker shade, considering the colour was one of the main criticisms of the original batch?

    IRM Fert Wagon

    As an end user of the fert., I can shed some light on the weight issue.... Basically, a pallet of fert is made up of 40 x 50kg bags, which equals 2 ton. The weight of the bags or loaded pallet hasn't changed over the years, except for a slight variation after the change from imperial to metric measurements... With the beams in the two centre compartments, a fully loaded wagon would hold 20 pallets, which was 40 ton....... However, in later years, a lot of the fert comes in large bulk bags. A pallet carries four of these large bags. Some bags hold 500kg, which means a pallet with four of these bags still weighs 2 ton, and didn't alter the fully loaded wagon weight. But...some of the bags hold 600kg of fert. So, a pallet of four would weigh 2.4 ton. and a wagon fully loaded with 20 of these pallets would be loaded to 48 ton.....

    Will the 42' series of wagons feature rotating axle caps, like the Taras? From the pictures, it looks like they might.......
