OO Gauge Telescopic Hood Wagons 11/02/2019
Dapol have announced that they will be producing a new batch of OO gauge Telescopic Hood Wagons.
Expected Q3 2019.
The telescopic hood wagon, designated KIA by the TOPS nomenclature system was built by Linke Hofmann Busch in Germany in 1979. One hundred and four were built and originally operated by VTG and then more recently by Tiphook. Their design with sliding roof and body sections ensured the efficient loading and transport of high grade sheet steel in rolls or coils which was subsequently delivered in perfect condition. These wagons were often seen in rakes of more than 10 wagons.
