OO Gauge PDS JHA Hopper Decorated Samples

OO Gauge PDS JHA Hopper Decorated samples

Dapol is delighted to be able to share a selection of images with you showing the PDS JHA Hopper decorated samples


Built by Powell and Duffryn these high capacity wagons were originally bought by ARC and wore the distinctive ARC livery but have since changed to wearing Hanson’s livery. They have on occasion also been seen sporting plain grey to hide graffiti The fleet is noticeable for its use of distinctive inside bearing TF1 low track force bogies. There are a few variants of the hopper. The outer hoppers are numbered 17xxx and the inner hoppers are numbered 19xxx. Only the most distal end of the outer hoppers are fitted with buffers, all wagons are fitted with buckeye couplings.

Project Update

The decorated samples have been reviewed by the design team and feedback has been provided to the factory to correct any issues. We are currently waiting for a production slot to be confirmed by the factory, but we expect to have these models in the shops between the end of Q3 & Q4 2024.
