N gauge model of the VTG Ecofret FWA twin and triple container sets in use with DB Cargo, Freightliner and GBRf. VTG developed the new and innovative FWA “Ecofret” in twin and triple format as wagons which are shorter than traditional container flats, meaning that in a market dominated by 40’ containers they can carry a greater load per train length.
The Ecofrets were introduced from 2011 and can be seen in DB red (triple set), VTG green used by Freightliner (twin sets), GBRf blue and VTG dark blue liveries (triple sets). We are offering 4 number variations of the VTG green twin sets and the GBRf blue triple sets so that modellers can assemble realistic rakes. In addition we are offering one of the two DB red triple sets (we will offer the second set if there is sufficient demand).
The models will feature a solid metal spine for weight with moulded deck and spigot details. They are the ideal accompaniment to our existing 40’ hi-cube containers and will be designed to accommodate them.
The twin car sets are 190mm and the triple sets are 280mm (both measurements over buffers).
