A special flat wagon

Evening All,

And Now for something completely different !  This model was built from a very nice laser cut wood kit by B.T.S. (Better Than Scratch).  I can highly recommend their kits,  always a joy to build !

It's a USMRR flatcar, built in 1860's. Kit #19517. My Dad built and weathered this model, added buffers and used Wiseman white metal archbar trucks. It fits in surprisingly well with the 7mm equipment,  so will be used on the BBR from time to time for special duties.

Seen here delivering Bertie Wooster's Aston Martin  :)
