comment in questions was from James who suggested that maybe I'd be interested in having a look at the wagons from the Sand Hutton Light Railway. No sooner was the suggestion made and I was on the hunt for scale drawings.
Actually that's not entirely true, I knew where the scale drawings were, they were in a book that I'd been tempted to buy ever since I picked up a copy of the Slate Quarry Album to get scale drawings for a bunch of Welsh slate quarry wagons (like the ones for the Aberllefenni box wagon). The publisher of that book, RCL Publications, also have a book on the Sand Hutton Light Railway and James' comment was a good excuse to buy a copy.
The book only arrived today so I haven't had a lot of time to read through it but it looks like an excellent book with lots of photographs, maps, and scale drawings. In fact while I haven't read much of the book yet, I've already started on a model of the open goods wagon! I'd certainly recommend the book to anyone with an interest in narrow gauge railways.
From the small amount of text I have read so far I've learnt a number of things including that there is a link between the railway and my home town, but more on that in a later post when I've done a little more research as I'm going to finish this post so I can get back to the 3D model I'm building!
