SPA from FTG

New wagon from a new name in RTR model railways


In the latest issue of Model Rail (MR205), I've reviewed the excellent new 'OO' gauge wagon from FTG Models. Filling The Gap in the BR air-braked fleet, FTG has produced a real gem in the steel-bodied SPA metal carrying wagon. As an enthusiastic modeller of the 1980s BR era, this was a very welcome release, complimenting Bachmann's OBA/OCA and BBA/BDA models, as well as a number of Cambrian Models plastic kits already in my fleet. The attractive Railfreight red scheme is enhanced by the Cardiff Rod Mill logos and a choice of running numbers is available in this first batch. Produced on FTG Models' behalf by DJ Models, it has been rendered to a high standard, with the only real issue being that the couplings are a bit short. For the full lowdown, however, see the review in Model Rail magazine...
