Well, here is Michael's latest work of art, the CIE standard cattle wagon from the late 1940s, early 1950s. There were hundreds of these, built with slight variations. This is the "1950" design, but the "1949" design can be easily made from our kit, just add a few bits of Plasticard in the right places! The Fitted version which survived (although I wonder with how much work?) into the 1970s.

Now you can run Fairs specials hauled by your 00 Works J15, or with the Lads' A Class.

The second photo shows the planked roof -

and in case the photo didn't  do Michael's work justice, I launched my drone and took a photo straight down on her!IMG_0629.thumb.jpg.ed1a0c1c3d7ed841528e76fe16520597.jpg

I should add that Michael quite literally got out of his hospital bed and got started on the Master for this wagon. I'm happy to say that he is fully on the mend and certainly hasn't lost his touch!

Order book opens in September, but feel free to send an e-mail to the link on my website.

Put me down for twelve.

My dear Jon, I wouldn't dream of putting you down, sending you up, possibly?

Thanks for the interest, gents - all noted.

She runs as well as she looks - I've just bashed her round the loft behind  Bachmann Mogul, sandwiched between twelve strange globular orange things and a beautiful GSWR brake van. I'm sure she'll run just as well behind my A Class when it's delivered (Blackrock, Lads, saves you postage?)

Hi Fishplate7

Don't starve the children, Eamon (took me ten minutes ingenuity to work out who you were!), I won't starve if you just take ten!

Thanks for the encouraging confirmation of your interest (it's all in my little book!).

Hope to deliver them to you personally at Backrock.

Hi Leslie

I'll be picking up a few at Blackrock also, I've been working out some weathering details in anticipation- here are a few shots of the cattle wagon left in a siding gone to hell!

Just about finished except for a straw bedding flowing out the sides mixed in with a bit of dodo!!

Hi Eoin

Thanks for the "order" -

I hope that pic is one of the earlier whitemetal GN jobs - you wouldn't do that to one of MINE!

Would you?

A serious piece of modern art - well done.

Sorry Leslie

It's one of your SL&NCR's,

I was able to squeeze in some top-hat wheel bearings also.

I'll take 4 kits

Great looking wagon Leslie, put me down for 6. Is there any chance that you could include the "vac brake" lettering on the transfer sheet for those of us who would like to modify the kit to model that version? Has anyone any ideas about where a suitable brake wheel can be sourced?

Good decision - turkey’n’ham doesn’t look well on a layout....!

(I’m in the same boat!!)

@patrick

Try Des in Studio Scale Models, I think I have seen him issue them in the past!

The transfer sheet COULD include a lot of things - Snails, Wheels, ranges of numbers (different for fitted and unfitted), the letters you suggest - where do I stop? 

I'll see what is reasonable and cost effective.

The little wheel had Michael and I scratching our heads for a solution. Maybe Eoin has given us the answer!

with a tiny but of fiddling you should be able to produce three variants from one kit.

Greetings from Cologne.

looking at the humbers flying off the shelf, i would be a mug if I didn't ask for at least 10 ( may be 20 once I have purchased all the other bits I have out standing at the moment)

Just out of Interest how many would run in a medium size train?

In a cattle special, 25, 30, maybe 40! But you'd get small numbers like one or two fitted ones on the back of a local passenger train, or occasionally in a goods train. Empties would routinely be added into a goods train to be dropped off somewhere that might have a cattle mart the following day.

Regarding the break wheels. As Eoin has suggested above, these can purchased from SSM. Below, is one of the sets I put together for some cement wagons I was working on at the time.

I wouldn't be surprise to find that Des does more sales from all these extra bits from his kits than he does a complete kit some times.

There may be more of a market for all those  extra additions to RTR models that we care to think about.

Thanks for that John, the Credit card is going to be badly hit later this year anyway with the class A locos so add 30 of these wagons whats a few bod more.

Ah yes Leslie, there's no hiding place to be found. Yes, you got it in one - fishplate7 aka Eamonn G. Don't worry about the children, we wont starve this Christmas (and I'll still take 10+)

Greetings from the Tyrol. Did you guys get torrential rain in the last few days?

Met my transfer man while passing through Switzerland annd he reports that he'll do any lettering for the cattle wagon so long as it's WHITE!

so we'll do the fitted lettering for you, Patrick. Maybe a wee bag with brass wheels and white letters?

Great trains these Railjets - good WiFi. Even got a "new" Taurus (for haulage) on the front.

Off topic, Leslie, but did the Taurus play a tune for you? :)

Loved the video  - how did I miss all those locos in World Cup livery? I've been in Austria every year for last twenty!
