Dec'O' Presflos surface
Ellis Clark Trains (ECT) has received decorated samples of its forthcoming ‘O’ gauge 22ton Presflo cement wagons for assessment.
First introduced in the mid-1950s, these distinctive vehicles were developed for transporting bulk powdered goods across the rail network.
ECT's all-new ‘O’ gauge model features a diecast metal chassis, injection moulded plastic body, sprung metal buffers, sprung axle boxes, working scale couplings and a wealth of separately applied detailing.
28 individual models are planned in private owner and BR liveries with and without marketing boards, as well as a choice of pre-TOPS and TOPS numbers. Seven different colour scheme/detail combinations will appear initially with four versions of each scheme – three uniquely numbered and one un-numbered. Most recently added is a TOPS numbered Blue Circle Cement branded grey Presflo with bright yellow Blue Circle Cement Bulk Loaded marketing boards (Cat No. E73-1-8A/B/C/U).
The initial decorated samples received include Blue Circle yellow and Blue Circle bauxite variants. Once approved, production is expected to get underway.
Prices are set at £69.99 each, with delivery expected later this summer.
