A trailer for the yellow peril

In the November issue of BRM, I've shown how I built a couple of wagons to accompany Howard's Road-Railer. For anyone who fancies doing the same job, here are a few more details.

 

First, you'll want a plan:

A full size version of this can be downloaded from here. This shows the skip wagon but if you prefer the flat version, just leave the sides off.

 

When I built the models, the closest I'd managed to get to the real thing was the wrong side of a chain-link fence at my local station. A few weeks later though, I found just the thing at a preserved railway and took pictures from all the angles normally unavailable.

As I say in the magazine, these wagons seem to be similar to each other but with many detail differences. My versions are generic and would be fine for most layouts, however if you want perfect, with a bit of luck these photos will help.

Also demonstrates how poorly RR plant is sometimes looked after, if we treated any of NR's wheelsets like that we would be in deep doo doo! Lets have it on some wooden bolsters lads ;)
