My wagon fleet is a bit imbalanced. Over the years I have built about 80 wagons and of course I have made the interesting ones. Ok, I have made quite a few open wagons and a good number of mineral wagons but I have long been aware that those dominated traffic and that the rest of my wagon fleet should make up at most 8% of the total number. Probably about the same sort of figure for any railway company of the period.
So, Plan A . Build about 230 mineral wagons and 150 open wagons and represent reasonably accurately the CR wagon fleet. Even if they are all sitting in a cupboard because my model railway is tiny in comparison to the real thing.
Plan B. Build some more of each, run a few trains in which open goods predominate and apply rule 1 to the rest of the fleet. Sound a more realistic target to me.
Anyway, I have spent the week fixing a few minor things and cleaning stuff. While I was at it I dug out some very old wagons, sorted them out and formed a short rake. They are all examples of sheeted opens I made a long time ago before I really decided on the Caley. Probably not very good, but they look ok from a distance.
I should make a good number more CR sheeted opens, but those four will do for a start.
