Ex GNR Open Carriage Trucks take shape

As alluded to earlier, the last couple of weekends have seen some more scratch building going on.

Having painted up my cars I need something to carry them on and Open Carriage Trucks fit the bill as being a little more in keeping than machinery wagons or Lowmac’s. A look through my trust Historic Carriage volumes gave me examples of GNR and NER so I made start on a couple of GNR examples.
First the 21′ version whose Diagram number I cannot recall and I left my book up north.

Followed by the earlier and shorter (18′) Diagram 375

I have another 21 footer started too. All the hinges and details were drawing in Inkscape and cut on the Cameo.
