I have four HHAs on my small layout, and was planning on at least another four; and then later on, another eight (to represent empties for the return journey).

So there's 16 right off. If I had a larger layout I'd certainly be looking at twice that number.

Yet another nice modern wagon from Bachmann, too.

Hey Gary, yep, my ultimate plan is to run proper "services," so, if a full coal train goes one way, then an empty one comes back in the opposite direction at some time. That's the idea, anyhow.

However, I checked on my layout last night, my arithmetic (eyesight?) is a bit wrong, I'm probably going to have to content myself with 6 wagons to represent my imaginary train (12 in all)....Ah well. One day.

It will be 8 x 2 = 16 JGAs, though. They're nifty little wagons, too.

On the prototype, well, I'm not an expert by any means, but real 66s haul 102 tonne HTAs 19 at a time, don't they? - I can see them on my local lines, or if I trouble to go to Avonmouth and look.

I don't know a 66's power limits, but I wouldn't have thought they were slackards. Any knowledegable enthusiast care to comment?
