Couple of Clam or Rudd wagons on the back of a trailer

Bachmann have a PNA type wagon due for release soon ab=nd it might make a good doner although I am not sure what length it is

They are 20' long on 40' ft flats, according to an IRRS Journal, shouldn't be that hard to rustle up a drawing for scratchbuilding. Anymore daycent photos about?

Here's a sketch of what the spoil containers *should* be in 00, based on photos [thx to CSalem of this parish] and redrawn 42' 9" bogie flat. Not sure if the 32.7mm width ties in with the MIR version, but it can be squashed easily. I might have a go at this meself tomorrow to see what the easiest styrene sections are.:confused: and will report back.
