Picked this kit up at Wycrail along with some Bachmann NEM pocket coupling mounts. The wagon will hopefully end up as a severely distressed wagon on Summat Colliery used to ferry loco coal from the screens to the coaling stage.
Anyway, following half an hour's work this lunchtime we have this
buffers and couplings yet to fit, will rob a couple of NEM pocket couplings off Summat's 16 tonners to position the pocket mounts. I want to use the NEM pocket couplings to standardise as much as possible on Summat, otherwise I'd use the supplied Bachmann MKII long bar mounts supplied with the kit.
Will cut a sheet of lead to add to the floor before a layer of coal is added, handy knowing a roofer you know
Now for the article on weathering plank wagons, I think it was Hornby Mag #6 ......
