Sugar Cane wagons, fitted with metal wheels at the factory?

I don't think so, I will check them when I get to the CFR later on today. When I first purchased the original wagons in 1996 they came with sugar cane loads but no printing, now they come with non sequential numbering but no loads.

45 euros for a feldbahn wagon - they're 'aving a larf :swear::swear::swear::swear:
Gaugemaster are advertising the 49191 basic flat car at £39. There was a serious price hike £28 to £31 when the wagons were first announced, but the drop in the pound has made them even more expensive. As you say they are having a laugh:swear::swear::swear::swear:.

Tamworth, Staffs.
It appears the flat car is just that.. 'Flat', as in, no stakes..

Absolutely, but there is also a pair of link and pin couplers:rofl:. Worth the price hike? I don't think so.:swear::swear::swear:

A well managed railway gets the maximum use out of its rolling stock especially when the sugar cane is out of season.:hi::hi::hi::giggle::giggle::giggle:

Wow, lots of frr, ......lots.
Im lucky if i have 4-6 of one style.

I love the frr stuff, changes the entire proportion and perspective of the rwy. Almost like o gauge in a way. Can change a small r1 oval and siding into a comparatively plausible layout.


Frr items too seem to have become scarce and pricey.
I remember the old close out days...2 cars for $29.00 or $39.00.

Prices for new feldbahn wagons have gone up considerably. All these latest second hand wagons cost me £200. They were as new having only been run on an indoor layout.
My current fleet of feldbahn wagons now stands a 220.
