Alan Gibson Photos: North British Coal Wagon
When you are interested in railway wagons, live in a time when we aren't over-supplied with RTR models and aren't scared of having a go, you will probably end up scratchbuilding some rolling stock.
This North British Jubilee type open coal wagon still isn't available in 4mm scale as far as I know (Parkside produce a kit in O gauge), so this model is probably unique. Built from Plasticard with Jackson wheels and, I suspect, cast axleboxes and buffers. As with yesterdays Persil wagon, this one has a hand-painted livery.
