Following retooling to the correct 60ft scale length, limited numbers of the wagons are released for sale this week.
Footplate of Kidderminster has taken delivery of revised Flangeway 'Salmon' wagons following retooling to the full 60ft scale length. The now correct scale-length wagons are available from the retailer in olive green, engineers' yellow and engineers' black liveries. Models are held at pre-pandemic prices.
Customers who held on to their under-scale models have received replacements and the remaining stock is available for sale in limited numbers from Saturday, June 4 at 09.00.
Richard Barnett of Footplate said, “We are pleased that we have been able to work with our partner, Dapol, to bring about a resolution to the issues that appeared in 2020. It has been a long journey; however, we are happy now to release the item to the true scale length following rectification.”
