125 of the OCA wagons were converted in 1985 to OTA timber wagons. They were used to carry softwood to paper mills. Seen mainly in the South West, Wales, the North & Scotland. The number of locations served was reduced after the end of the Speedlink service. All were out of use by the end of 2007, and a number had previously been written off in a serious derailment in 2002 at Quintinshill caused by a failed bearing.
OTA-As had either 11 or 13 stanchion sockets; either of which can be made from the kit.
More recently some of the stanchions & sockets have been removed leaving only 8 on each side.
Includes a capping strip for making the flat-topped-end version
BOXED: Packeted, excellent.
