The four open NQR wagons have been finished. The colour is very close to the colour used at the Victorian Railways’ narrow gauge railways. The numbers are 21 – 24, with the 10’s reserved for covered wagons (only the powder wagon is planned at the moment). The one digit numbers will be used for carriages and brake vans.

The wagons are rather light and prone to derailments. I have cut some steel to add as weight. This makes the wagons far more stable but unfortunately too heavy for the locomotives to pull. I will reduce the steel and load the wagons with firewood and other mining necessities.
