Re: [7mmnga] Digest Number 906
- The late M.E.M. Lloyd produced a 7mm scale drawing of one of the four wheeled GWR transporter wagons, a 14 ton vehicle, no. 25020, diagram ?, (originally 'Macaw A' 48920), which accommodated six NG slate wagons. Copies of this drawing can still be purchased from his estate - contact me off-list and I will pass the details on.

There was only one six-wheeled host wagon which was later replaced by
a pair of four-wheeled bolster wagon conversions.
Adrian - in pedant mode because he has done a lot of research on
these wagons and published an article in British Railway Journal
several years ago!!
