Parcels van and coal trolley

Here are a couple of horse-drawn vehicles for "The bay".

This GWR parcels van is based on No. 131, representing a type introduced in the 1890s. It was made using a Langley kit.

The lettering is based on photos from the period (including the use of different fonts), and drawn up in Word with a brown background to match the van colour. It was then printed on thin paper and stuck to the van side. This shot is ruthless but from a normal viewing distance it looks OK. The poster is an original GWR example from 1907, reduced to scale size and printed.

A Coal-merchant's trolley from Shirescenes. The kit also includes parts to make it up price boards and scales if so desired, a nice touch.

Later I simplified the model, turning it into a straightforward flat trolley as seen here.
