This pack contains two IWA Sfins2 holdall van models – with a choice of 10 different running numbers across 3 different liveries (Norsk Hydro (2 twin packs); Unbranded (1 twin pack); Cargowaggon (2 twin packs).
160 of these ferryvans were built by Waggon Union from 1987 and their design incorporated integral one-piece sides and roofs so that each complete half can be lifted and slid over the other, using the distinctive handwheels at each end, for unencumbered loading and unloading.
When built they were operated by Cargowaggon GMbH and ISIS/Norsk Hydro. The Hydro wagons were primarily used to transport fertiliser from Immingham to destinations in the Midlands, Scotland and south Wales. Those in Cargowaggon livery saw more varied use on steel traffic, bottled water and newsprint in both block trains and Speedlink wagonload services. Many are still in use on trains carrying aluminium ingots from Ditton Foundry near Warrington to Nievenheim in Germany via the Channel tunnel. 30 of the Sfins2 vans have had the hoods removed and been converted into timber carriers which we are also offering.
