Wagons and Vans...Page Two


To the right is a simple, easy scratch built wagon with none working brake gear and brake shoe's. So EASY to make and weather and costs VERY little to build. The central bar is for a net to protect the wagon goods... if needed. (April 2017)

This is the second item finished from my batch build....the T.A.C.T. Director's Coach used for going around the lines checking for waste labour! The coach has canvas blinds plus a central ceiling light. Under the table is a gas cyclinder for the gas ring and to the right the red top of the biscuit can be seen! This shows the thing about 'Rubber Scale', being able to use Doll's House stuff as well as the parent scale.

Here to the left is a Slate wagon given to me by Mike Ousby in return for a review for the 16mm Association magazine. Making the kit was boring to the extreme and since my line is set in Sandstone country ....rather pointless! Now the wagon is part of the 'line maintenance train' and here is Perce Milner getting a ride....

It's April 2017 and I am rather behind in garden jobs, but here are three 3 plank wagons awaiting the 'Lettering Department'. Note the weathering! Viewed from a scale 30 foot as here its dead easy to make things look real...(April 2017)

August 2016...Here we are down the shed. As you can see the batch build is coming along fine. To the left I am making the lift up sides of the wagons, so coal and the like can be unloaded. The gear to do this is made from old coat hanger wire or brass wire. The hinges are made from thin brass sheet and grab handles made from split pins and more wire.....Easy!
