Merry go round another fantastic product!!

Packaging Brillaint
Product Amazing
Price Cannot fault it.

Simple review for a simple wagon that’s far from simple itself, amazing level of detail and the finish is second to none!!

James L.
Amazing detail, quality and value

Such a step up from the 'high detail' Hornby versions. Proportionally they look great and have real presence. The triple packs are such a good idea too enabling you to build realistic rakes with ease.

I love all the minor detail differences with operator logos etc. There's nothing worse than getting a wagon pack where the numbers are sequential, so it's good that these are 'random'.

Packaging, as we've come to expect from Accurascale, is sturdy and has a quality feel.

Only criticism is that they're way too clean ;)

At £25 each, they offer amazing value compared to what other companies are charging for ancient tooling!

Can't wait for the next batch...

Another great wagon

The detail on these fabulous wagons is absolutely top drawer. Great value for money and so easy to build a decent size rake at an affordable price

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

Joseph G.
Excellent wagons

Really impressive level of detail, great value and really quick delivery too.

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.
