|WF "Test Print" Painted but with no added details|
The WF's were versatile wagons, carrying on-board a set of bolsters and stanchions which were stowed in slots in the steel deck. The sides of the wagons included lashing rings for securing loads, and slots for container fixing brackets.
Starting in 1979, the WFs were reclassified as WFDY.

The Marbelup Models "kit" for the WF/WFW/WFDY consists of a one-piece 3D-printed body in HO scale. Some cleanup will probably be required to remove the support structures which are required during the 3D printing process. Typically, this takes about 30 minutes. The purchaser must also obtain, separately, bogies, couplers, fixing screws, brass wire (for details such as handrails), paint and decals. Refer to the Assembly Tips for more information.
These models are available to order now. The approx. costs are:
- WF/WFW/WFDY HO Scale: $55.
- Iron Ore Containers HO Scale: $20 each or $55 per set of 3.
- Iron Ore Containers S Scale: $40 each.
