Hornby OTA Carrier Wagon
Hornby OTA Timber Carrier Wagon
Released by Hornby from 2011 onwards. The OTA wagons were built to transport timber from the Scottish highlands to the paper mills. The OTA’s when built, used the chassis of redundant OCA wagons & also VDA vans. Various batches were built to a variety of different designs, so various detail differences can be seen between the different batches of wagons built, such as the side stanchions, etc. Hornby has modelled two types of OTA wagon so far, the original & extended height end walls.
The wagon is available in BR & EWS liveries. The model features fine-scale wheels, finely moulded details & separately fitted detailed parts & fine printed details. NEM coupling boxes with small style removable tension lock couplings. Hornby has paid good attention to detail. Very smooth excellent running wagons.
