In my previous blog entry I mention that I was looking for information about wooden plank loads circa 1905. Well I'm pleased to say that RMweb members came up trumps and provided me with loads of really useful information, thanks chaps! I've been very taken by the wagon loads manufactured by Richard Ellis (tricky) of Monk's Gate Models https://www.monksgate.co.uk/shop?category=Wagon+Loads, so decided to treat myself to some planks for my wagon The planks arrived in the following day's post and after a bit of staining with a very dilute wash of brown/black enamel paint were glued in position in the wagon. Dyed thread was used to represent the rope that would have been used to tie the load down and stop it moving during transit.

I'm delighted with the end result, thanks again to those that helped by providing prototype information.
