LTSV Wagons 2016 - A rather surprising modification has been made to GB Railfreight HYA wagon number 371051. This 61ft long coal hopper wagon has been reduced in length to 49ft to make it suitable for aggregates traffic. It has also been painted (HYAs were new in unpainted metal finish) and is now in plain grey with VTG logos. New codes HYA-B and HY002A have been assigned and it remains to be seen if further conversions follow.
If the new overall length is the above quoted 49 feet (10 feet being approximately the length of a set of discharge doors) that would equal 14.94m or for simsig purposes 15m

Passed the age to be doing 'Spoon Feeding' !!!
