PFA next for Accurascale

ACCURASCALE is aiming to deliver a brand new model of the PFA four-wheel container flat and containers in July 2019 following announcement of the project on March 23.

The PFA flats were introduced in 1986 for Cawoods Coal containerised coal trains. These ran across England and Wales to ports in the North West for onward shipment of coal to Ireland.
