IRM Spoil Wagons Are Here and IN STOCK NOW!!!
Our latest wagon in our "Project 42" series is the most modern of all; the spoil container wagons! These wagons are in stock now, ready to dispatch today!
Who doesn't love a bit of permanent way yellow? These bright wagons were converted to dedicated spoil wagons to work on infrastructure trains. Such services have been seen across the IE system for almost 10 years now. A total of 24 wagons were converted at Limerick Works to replace the aging former barytes wagons on this duty and they debuted in traffic in September 2011.
Usually found behind 071s (or occasionally 201s!) the wagons are used to clear used ballast and spoil from engineering works, side by side the HOBS wagons. They often be found stationed in the permanent way sidings at Portarlington.
More recently they have been hired by Translink to operate some spoil trains in Northern Ireland and in the past week are being used to transport used sleepers from North Wall to the south east of the country.
Our model of these vitally important workhorses feature a wealth of separately applied detail and capture the distinctive looks of these wagons. A heavy diecast chassis ensures adequate weight is provided in these low level wagons, with the spoil containers faithfully rendered and featuring the run off guards at each end.
These wagons of course feature our high specification including sprung buffers, close coupling mechanism with optional coupling bars, rotating axle bearing caps and intricate detail we expect to find on scale models of the prototypes.
The best thing about this model is that there is no wait time between ordering and dispatch; these wagons are in stock now, ready to post! Packs are €100 each, with a bundle deal of all four packs for €370. So, make sure you don't miss out, order here: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/ie-spoil-wagons
