As one would expect yet another superb model from Accurascale - the iconic MGR which I used to see in rakes of 21 or indeed 42 wagons. The finish and detail is a vast improvement over my ageing Hornby variants - the facilitation of different running numbers adds to the overall effect. Well done to all at Accurascale andook forward to the next run.

2nd purchase of MGR hoppers

I had originally purchased the HBAs in Loadhaul and railfreight frame varieties and was going to wait to they came out in Railfreight coal yellow frames but i was so impressed with the quality and detail of these hoppers that i bought 2 more packs of the Loadhaul liveried variants. This means i will be making a 3rd purchase as and when the Railfreight coal liveried ones appear.
Furthermore I purchased the 2nd order on black Friday making the wagons less than £18 each. That is amazing value for such a detailed wagon.

Great wagons

Damn you - I’m
Spending far too much money on these!

HBA Wagons

Continues the very high standard of production and detail on this wagon which has the extender coal dust covers around the hopper to reduce dust and spillage when on the move

Ashley K.
Iconic wagon

These wagons are amazing in terms of detail the only thing missing is the working doors, apart from that it’s all there not a single rivet is missing, **** link instanter couplings, sprung buffers, the wheels are finely detailed as the chassis with the safety and door release mechanism, very nice crisp body. All is correct size nothing too big or too small. Price and I’m more than happy with that, for me personally they are priceless because I grew up with these and being from a mining background. I wanted a precision model to represent my heritage. These will form my prestigious collection of coal hoppers which these are legendary

HBA review

Wow these wagons look and run fantastic, just wish i had a layout capable of running full length trains 30+ wagons.
I am hoping there will be HBA hoppers with the yellow framing of trainload coal coming soon.

Another Amazing Wagon from Accurascale!

I'm really pleased with these HBA hoppers, they arrived in perfect condition, all detailing parts intact and are beautiful to look at. The printing is razor sharp, colours all superbly applied and on top of the highly detailed base model which is free running, smooth and more accurate than predecessors. It will almost be a shame to cover over this beautiful silver finish with weathering!

Hopper excellence

These are the most detailed coal hopper wagons that have been produced for the UK market. Excellent runners. These complement the EWS hoppers I purchased a couple of months ago and I will be getting more, after diverting to get an MHA

Loadhaul HBA
