Flangeway ZZA Snowplough

BR independent snow Tops Code ZZA first released by Flangeway Models back around 2008 onwards. The snowploughs have been released in various liveries in short limited edition batch runs, around 300 per livery. The one featured in this article dates back to the first batch of released snowploughs by Flangeway, catalogue number IS6 in the Eastfield Depot livery. The snowplough is in a black livery with warning yellow chevrons on the nose & rear. It carries the Eastfield trademark white Scottie Dog with the lettering Eastfield & fleet number: ADB965220.

Included as an extra for fitting by the modeller is a roof mounted icicle breaker. The model has lamp brackets on the front, but no work lamps are included. The rear of the model has one flushed window as well as a NEM coupling socket with small type tension lock coupling. The tension lock coupling can be removed.

The wheels are fine scale type mounted on floating axles which copes well with most pointwork & radius curves. Going back to the lighting this article is worth checking out for fitting working lights:
