New tool N Gauge HRA wagon and Class 47 update lead Graham Farish winter announcements

For their Winter 2023 announcements, Bachmann Europe have announced a brand new model of the HRA aggregate hopper wagons for the Graham Farish N Gauge range.


Converted by WH Davies from redundant HTA coal wagons, during the conversion one of the coal hopper bays is removed, reducing the length of the wagon by 20% of its original size to 14.3 meters. Despite the reduction in length, the gross weight each wagon can carry remains the same at 101.6 tonnes. This allows more wagons to be transported per train, increasing the potential payload tonnage of the train by 447 tonnes for the same length.

Four running numbers will be available at release, all wearing the distinctive DB Cargo red livery and with an RRP of £46.95
