Horse-drawn parcels van and coal trolley
horses parcels cartage Bay horse-drawn
This GWR parcels van is based on No. 131, representing a type introduced in the 1890s. The horse is not actually tap dancing - it only looks that way! Anyway, this is a Langley kit, and went together reasonably well with no major hitches. The instructions are good and include detail on the paint scheme.

A Coal-merchant's trolley from Shirescenes. The kit also includes price boards and scales, the latter being a rather nice touch. I had a spot of trouble fitting the axles to the correct ride-height, as this seemed counter-intuitive and the instructions are a bit vague in this respect. But other than that, a nice kit to build.
The trolley installed on "The bay". I eventually decided to modify it a bit and just have it as a simple flat vehicle.
