A major undertaking by Eureka has commenced with the start of what we are calling the “12 Wheeler Project”. The first step in the project is the NCR set consisting of four cars, these being BV, HCV, HFV and RFV. The project has been undertaken with the aim of producing as many of the 12 wheeler coaching stock in multiple variations (ie. with and without crown lights) as is economically viable. Provision for these later items is being incorporated into the design process from the start and it is anticipated that by using two common under-frames it will be possible to produce variations that would otherwise not be viable.
