Bachmann VDA Van – OO ScaleScore 91%Score 91%

Bachmann VDA van released back in 2008 to Bachmann’s Blue Ribbon standard. An improved version of the VAA/VBA van. The VDA features strengthened ends & four doors per side. The model also features superb body side & chassis detailing. Model includes finescale wheels, NEM coupling pockets & removable small tension lock couplings.  Liveries offered so far are:

BR Railfreight, Transrail, BR Civil Link, Satlink, EWS. Some weathered versions & limited editions have also been released. Another essential modern image era wagon for the 1970s to mid-2000s (noughties).

The VDA was the result of BR experimenting with different types of door in the mid 1970s. The VDA van had spaced out door release catches & centrally opening doors. The VDA’s had external bracing on the end walls for added strength. Many VDA’s where later converted into OTA timber carrying wagons in the 1980s due to a fall in the traffic they were originally built to cater for.
