Tiger Leasing TTA Chemical Tanks

These wagons are another use for the Hornby TTA base model. Again the ends have been removed and replaced with Genesis white metal conical ends. This time, because they were used for chemical traffic, they need over-riders on the ends. This is a relatively easy conversion to get a fairly accurate different wagon type. It is also a cheap conversion.

This conversion was triggered by a transfer company bringing out various hazchem transfers. I think they later gave up or closed down, whether they went to another producer or not I don’t know. The chance to do something different certainly spurred me on to do some conversions. I think that all or most of this traffic has disappeared from wagon or block load traffic, some may possibly still travel in tanktainers on intermodal traffic.

This is a rake of three.
