These flour wagons have 4 silos mounted on a deep underframe and were gravity fed through top hatches. They are discharged by air pressure being forced into each silo and exiting through pipes mounted on the end platforms. Several flour companies in Australia used these wagons and there logos and advertisements appear on some of them.


This is a set of 3 double bogie FX1 flour hoppers in HO scale in the basic VR livery which has a mainly silver color scheme with VR logo. They are ready to run with highly detailed bodies, underframe and chassis, etched stainless steel walkways and ladders, blackened Code 100 nickel silver turned solid wheels and geniune Kadee 158 scale "Whisker"couplings. The bodywork is injection molded, the metal parts have been applied separately and the detailing is for the 1966 period.
