Hello and welcome to
The model is based on a total of 62 wagons built between 1903 and 1909, which were used all over the L & Y for permanent way work.
Drawing 5247 has been taken as the starting point, but extra pieces, such as the Engineer's depot plates and bars for securing the canvas covers have also been included.
The only number that I can positively identify is 10116, based at Bolton, but further details should be found in the second volume of L & Y Wagons, now at the printers for publication shortly.
