CJM JMA Wagon Reviews

Well, when I came down this morning, I’m afraid the JMAs hadn’t bred overnight so you’ll just have to keep slaving away!



Now that I’ve had a proper look at them I can appreciate the plethora of tiny detail in the weathering which makes each wagon unique. The whole rake looks magnificent coupled to 59206 Pride of Ferrybridge and it’s notable that the blue of the wagons is identical to the blue of the loco. The comparison with the train of Freightliner Heavy Haul HHAs is striking, mainly because of the close coupling of the JMAs. Removal of the inside buffers allows the wagons to be so much closer together. The National Power train, of ten wagons, is exactly 4.5 cm shorter than the Freightliner train.



Needless to say, I’m looking forward to seeing the Freightliner train ‘mucked up’ to a similar standard.



Very many thanks for such a brilliant job. Passenger trains are gradually taking a back seat in my collection these days as they can’t compare with the delightfully authentic goods trains I’m acquiring.
