Hattons has released advanced CAD images of their latest project to produce Rail Head Treatment Trains in OO/1:76
In 2003, Network Rail ordered 50 FEA-F container wagons to replace a small and increasingly unreliable fleet of Rail Head Treatment Trains (RHTT). They designed three types of module to be used during the autumn when leaf fall can cause trains to slip on the rails. They use a mixture of water jets and a paste called 'Sandite' (a mixture of sand, aluminium and a unique adhesive) to clear the rails and to aid adhesion. The three modules are; Water tanks, Sandite applicators and Pump platforms. Even though these are only seen for a few months a year, they remain one of the most photographed types of train in the UK.
Hattons is producing four two-wagon versions of the RHTT, with two extension packs available to enlarge your train to three wagons, you can explore the different options, see the images.
