FGA BR Freightliner Outer Container Flats(x2) Maritime Conta

OO gauge

These were the first type of container flat wagons built by British Rail and formed into sets of wagons, each wagons being designed to carry 3 20-foot containers. As these formations of (usually) five wagons were intended to be fixed formations the outer wagons were fitted with side buffers and conventional couplings at one end only. The inner end of the wagons and both ends of the inner wagons had fixed bar couplings which were intended to be uncoupled only at repair depots.

The Freightliner flat models feature details such as linkage, pipe work, close couplings, in-board disc-brake detail and sprung buffers. For fixed rake operation the models feature fixed bar couplings between wagons with standard tension lock couplings in NEM pockets at the outer ends. The wagon deck is of die-cast metal construction, giving weight and stability to the vehicle.


The Bachmann Branchline range of wagons is justifiably regarded by many as the finest on the market. With nearly 200 wagons on offer in this years range, youre sure to find the vehicle you need for any goods train on your layout.
