MOC: J Cement Hopper

15 posts in this topic

Here's the latest addition to my collection of Victorian Railways rollingstock:

4777415416_441baaf376_m.jpg4776784081_72909fea6e_m.jpg

This Victorian Railways hopper was coded "X" on delivery and was used for cement traffic, but was eventually recoded to "J". The first hoppers of this type initially carried pulverised brown coal for steam locos (coded "CK"), then bulk flour (coded "X", "FX", and "FJ"), and finally cement (coded "J"). At the end of their life, some were used to carry dry locomotive sand.

The pipes were for pneumatic discharge of the cement into road tankers or storage silos.

Prototype.

That's a really amazing waggon! It reminds me of a H0 waggon because it is so detailed! Great job! Really fantastic!

Scruf: I always enjoy and appreciate your outstanding train wagons. Right off, I love the dark red and black color combination. Secondly, the sideways wall to create the base of the hopper is a most clever design and one that I don't recall seeing in trains before. The cement hoppers themselves look really nice with the added details of the gauges, railing, and tubing.

Also impressive is your nicely designed track and rail bed. The black tiles work well with the new bley track.

I think this deserves a front-page! Great job and thanks for sharing here in Train Tech! :thumbup:

Wow you have done really well here. As commented by others, the curved look is executed brilliantly and the pipework really looks realistic.

Choice of colours was good too!

I wonder, do they carry liquid cement ? It is kept liquid by constant mixing ?
