Hi folks, hope you are all well.

I have a bit to say about the Hornby Tipping Wagon operating set.

Within my layout I am building, I have included two of the Hornby operating sets - the tipping wagon set and the conveyor set.Recently I felt it would be a great addition to have more tipping wagons to expand the fleet of Adler and Allan wagons, so the 'company' has an increased presence in the industrial area.

Having searched alot I find Hornby do not make one exactly as required. This I conclude from Googling for individually sold end tipping wagons from Hornby. There is the R6212A wagon which is almost the same with two exceptions, one in particular: there is no latch on the side to release the end when the wagon is tipped. Also it is not weathered, but that's not a biggie.

Have a look for yourself. Below is the Operating set in action, and the photo is the R6212A individual wagon which you can see has no latch but appears to have a hole for one.




I would love to hear from anyone that is able to modify a R6212A wagon so that a latch is included. I could fathom making the latch and fitting it but I doubt it would be anything like as good as an experienced logo/wagon builder could make.
I have also contacted Hornby this evening to ask why this seems to be the case.

Cheers for reading.

Methinks you need to reduce the gradient or add winter grip tyres to the loco.  You'll either need new wheels or new track very shortly with all that spinning ..................:mutley:mutley:mutley

Nevertheless, a nice idea from Hornby. :thumbs

Very much so, the gradient is really steep in that video!
