These are never going t look right behind my nice new Rat..

But they do have a nice sturdy frame underneath.

The steps would need chopping out and the buffers raising.. But I'm sure they could form the basis of a more "respectable" model.

They scale at 260" across the current buffer lugs... Any ideas for an appropriate size wagon ?

Yeah a brake van springs to mind first...

Once you've one of them how do they scale out against a small TTA tank wagon? or perhaps one of the early tube wagons (opens)? or a Cawoods container coal wagon (PFA coded I think)?

It's probably completely wrong, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the frame was Andy's mermaid conversion.

 

The loco looks great by the way, I love the videos! I'm trying to persuade my dad to build a garden railway as there's no space on our 30' sloping section :(
