I really wasn't planning on another 009 layout, but that's the way it turned out and the expected 7mm narrow gauge got shifted back a peg. This means two things: 1. I'm back on track with the 5 year plan, and 2. certain people might start talking to me again.
Anyway... The above is the usual hi-tech approach and is the beginnings of a small wagon based on the slightly lower Southwold Railway round end varieties with a couple of alterations, i.e. the slightly opened out wheelbase of the Tri-ang chassis, and wood stanchions on the end replacing the prototype's angle iron. In searching around for inspiration I note that David Taylor had taken a similar route for his examples on Charmouth.
For the real thing aim at 30 secs into the following bit of film that I found on the line.
