After many years of development and research, Footplate of Kidderminster has finally released engineering prototype images of its latest Flangeway wagon, the Salmon.

As this is the first EP, the model is now being reviewed to ensure that any inaccuracies are corrected and that the first release can accurately depict the 1980’s air-braked vehicles, as well as ensuring that other variations can be accurately portrayed without any major alterations, including versions with the rail cranes and more modern ASF bogies.

Prices and release date are yet to be announced, however, Footplate has confirmed that the first release will depict the 1980’s variants in engineers yellow and grey.

In addition to the Salmon arriving, the latest release of the Snowplough is expected soon. The second batch of livery samples are currently being reviewed and should be signed off shortly, with arrival expected in time for winter.

Updates on the Salmon will follow once final details have been confirmed and will be available for pre-order from Footplate’s website soon.
