Cavalex Mod­els hasn’t rested on its lau­rels now that its first ready-to-run wagon is in stock… it’s an­nounced one new lo­co­mo­tive, a range of coaches and two new wag­ons, and each will be avail­able in both ‘OO’ and ‘N’ gauges. Star billing goes to an all-new Class 91 elec­tric and a range of Mk 4 coaches, to com­prise Stan­dard, First, Buf­fet and Driv­ing Van Trailer ve­hi­cles. As for the wag­ons, CAD de­sign work is nearly com­plete on the new TEA tank. Cavalex is to pro­duce the TEA built at Stan­dard Wagon works with Glouces­ter GPS25 bo­gies for To­tal Oil in the late 1980s. Two batches were built (num­bers 85930-944 and 85960-974) and they’re still in ser­vice, al­though four have been con­verted to KBA bar­rier wag­ons for mov­ing Lon­don Un­der­ground S-stock to and from Derby. Last but not least is the PHA bo­gie hop­per built for Bar­don Hill Quar­ries. WH Davis built 50 wag­ons in two dis­tinct batches (30 in 1986-88 and a fur­ther 20 in 1990). Fur­ther de­tails had not been an­nounced at the time this is­sue went to print, but for more in­for­ma­tion visit www.cav­alex­mod­
