Evening All,
I've tried looking everywhere but cannot find a single one.
I recently bought one of these wagons without the load (fool on me) and i'm looking to find one to replace it.
If anybody knows where i can find one for a reasonable price please get in touch
Thanks,
Phil

Errr... Make one?

A bit of foam insulation.. Carve it up a bit.. Glue ballast / vermiculite on top.. Paint in colour of choice. :think:

I’d do that if I wanted it to look rubbish as my skills in hand modelling are naff!
Looking for the proper ones as they’ll definetly fit and match the other 3 I have..
Thanks for the option though!

You could make a rubber mould and cast one in plaster of paris.

For my OEG 2 axle hopper wagons, I lined them with cling film, and dropped in a mix of cheap Tesco cat litter held together with diluted PVA glue.

Once set, the moulded ballast can be lifted out and the cling film disposed off....
