Flangeway Salmon Wagon - EP

Add to Cart:

  • Model: SALMONEP
  • Manufactured by: Flangeway

January 2020 Update:

Attention has focussed on the finer details of the wagon include the platform surface and the 'strap box' which is underslung on the chassis.

We noticed on the Engineering Prototype that there were a number of details that had been omitted and rather than press on with production we needed to make sure that we captured the key features of the wagon before signing off the sample. Therefore this has added an increased delay to the next stage of the project and now hope to receieve an updated EP in the next couple of months.

We will also be able to provide pricing and livery specifications soon which are currently being finalised.

Footplate of Kidderminster are pleased to show off their latest Flangeway wagon, the Salmon. After many years of development and research, the Engineering Prototype of the Salmon has landed.

First impressions are extremely favourable, however 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 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.

The first releases will depict 1980’s variants in engineers yellow and grey - release dates and prices will follow in due course.

In addition to the Salmon arriving, the latest release of the Snowplough is expected soon. Currently, the second batch of livery samples are being reviewed and should be signed off soon, paving the way for production. It is hoped the Snowplough’s will arrive in time for winter snow duties…

Although the Salmon has yet to be released for pre-order, Footplate are still taking pre-orders for the Snowplough via the website; Updates on the Salmon will follow once final prices have been confirmed and will then be available for pre-order from the Footplate website.

This product will be in stock on Monday 01 June, 2020.
