Welsh Slate Wagons

I am making up some wagons to go behind my Quarry Hunslet for a ‘Dinorwic’ corner of my layout. Thought the group may be interested. Two are finished and another 4 types are in the pipeline. I have attached photos of the slab wagon and the waste wagon also a photo of the first run of the waste wagon and the chassis for the other 4 types. Trevor at Mercian is supposed to be doing a 4 part casting for the sides of the slate wagon to fit this chassis.

Now I have found KBscale’s double flanged wheel they look better. Originally I was building them for 16.5 but now have changed to 14mm gauge. I will have some etches left after I have built a loaded and unloaded rake of each type if any one is interested.
