Nice job Rik, I do like te rounded ends.

I've had a number of cheapo wagons sitting in a box for years, perhaps when I've done the stream, reroofed the thatched cottage...!

Thanks chaps. Yes, I thought the second wagon looked like it could have originated on the Southwold. I do like curved-end wagons.

I've now blogged the build of the first wagon for anyone interested - http://riksrailway.blogspot.com/2018/09 ... style.html

I like the scenery as much as the wagons in that photo Rik!

Seems to have bounced back after the lack of rain in the summer, Tom.

Useful additions to the fleet. (My lawn is recovering, albeit slowly. I'll invest in a water butt for next year and keep all the waste water for the lawn!)
