Re: Wooden coal cart - advice needed

That's a lovely looking horse and cart Rik. I have very little woodworking experience, especially since my long time ago school days. I do agree with you though on how many different skills are involved in this fantastic hobby.

I've never been there but it looks wonderful.
It is! And not only is it full of sources of modelling inspiration, but they also share your admiration for the wonders of SBR so much they have dedicated many items of rolling stock to it :thumbleft
