One of the most widespread types of tanker to run on Britain’s railways, the TTA forms an exciting addition to Hornby’s growing range of TT:120 freight wagons. Important to any modeller of the diesel era, the TTA tank wagons have a broad appeal for any layout. Available to buy now from the Key Model World Shop. 

Designed in the 1960s to supersede ageing types of tank wagons, the TTA constituted a standardised design that would continue in frontline service into the mid-2000s. Constructed to transport a range of mainly flammable types of liquid, the TTA continued the trend of tankers being owned and run for independent companies by British Rail and could often be seen in very short or long block trains.

 Hazardous The TTA tank wagon is an important addition to Hornby’s TT:120 freight range, with this example decorated with the recognisable branding of ESSO, as 74007. Suited to the 1970s and 1980s (era 7), the model features fine walkway detail and separately fitted pipework, while the legible warning label detail further enhances the model.

A stand-out item of freight rolling stock, tank wagons that convey hazardous liquids always prove popular and the TTA is a must for any British Rail-era model railway. Equally ideal for use with Hornby’s TT:120 locomotives in a block train or on a shunting puzzle behind an 08 shunter, the TTA suits a model railway of any size.

Product highlights include:

  • TTA Tank wagon 74007 in ESSO grey and red

  • NEM standard removable couplings

  • Turned metal wheels

  • Highly detailed die cast and metal separately fitted parts

  • Accurate for any layout of British Rail in the 1970s and 1980s (era 7)
