Thread: Irish Railway Models Ballast Wagon

  1. #161
    More positive reviews, more good publicity, more sales, even if it is only a few more sets, it's good for Irish modelling.

    I see from your website that they come in three sets of three wagons. Is that correct as I thought they came in four sets of three like the cement bubbles?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Ray.

    That's correct Ray.

    The ballast wagons come in 3 sets of 3, the bubble in 4 sets of 3.

    The logic, if anyone's interested, was that when you top and tail a rake of ballasts with plough vans, and add an 071, you'll probably be at the maximum acceptable rake length on the average layout. However, with the cement bubbles not suffering the same requirement (except those that want to run them unfitted with a brake van), a reasonable sized home layout can take a loco and 12 bubbles comfortably.

    Whatsmore, those than can go to a prototypical rake of double headed 121's and 24 wagons, can have enough variety in running numbers and logos, such that it doesn't look all "samey".
