Hornby HEA/HSA 45t Hopper Wagon

This model was originally produced by Dapol which was based on the 1976 Mainline model of the HBA hopper wagon. Dapol acquired the tooling from Mainline along with stock & other tooling. In 1986 Dapol sold the tooling on to Hornby who have produced various variations & liveries of the HEA wagon, which enables the modeller to create authentic consists.

The model whilst not quite up to the standard of today’s super detail models such as the version produced by Bachmann is still a worthy one to add to your wagon fleets.
