About Edit

The HKA Hopper Wagon is a type of hopper used in the United Kingdom. In the Great Western Express dlc, it is in DB Cargo UK livery. The wagons are used in the Aggregate Industries scenario which involves the unloading of these hoppers and moving them to a freight yard. They feature a handbrake on both sides of the wagon.

History Edit

Formerly built for National Power, DB Cargo Rail UK’s HKA hoppers were once used to haul coal into Drax Power Station, but after significant conversion are used today for aggregate works all around the country, including at Southall on the Thames Valley. Since 2014, HKA aggregate hoppers have been resplendent in DB Schenker Red, so when combined with a repainted Class 66 some seriously bright traffic is scheduled to come through.
