This is the finished result of a Coopercraft cattle wagon that runs on the D&S.


A bit fiddly & needs some extra weight.

Recently I was given 3 partly assembled kits that had a fair amount of damage so I thought OK,  lets make them into a bogie Cattle wagon - yeah I know, none ran in the UK but it is my Railway.

A bit of cut & glue & this it so far. Added extra weight by lead sheet



Just the light that gives the blue colour ;the remaining wall to be added , the roof has been made up of two of them; bogies have been ordered then couplers to go.

All finished -  lettered  for Owen's railway. The story is:  built here in Australia to be shipped to the UK but  with the demise of cattle traffic in the area where the MN&S resides so it was not required so the  D&S purchased it as it came out of the workshop. ( that is my story)



It is sure to raise some eyebrows this coming weekend when modellers of the British outline come to my place for the afternoon.
