Looking for GWR w1/5 cattle wagon plans

#1

Post by scoobster28 » Fri Jun 12, 2020 3:36 pm

Can anyone point me to an online reference that might have them? I have some pictures, but no actual plans. I have found links to other GWR plans, but not these cattle wagons. I would like to build one in the USA, so going to see one in a museum and taking measurements isn't an option.

Thanks!

Hi scoobster28. I am sure there are books on GWR wagon plans available. Not being a follower of GWR I cannot point you towards any such information.

Cooper Craft have a cattle wagon kit.

Hope this helps.

Be careful of cooper craft. Not the best reputation for reliable delivery on time, if at all.

Thanks. I saw them, but am interested in the plans. I may just guessimate, as very few others in the USA will know if I am off a scale foot or two. Most can't comprehend OO vs. HO anyway.

try this link to The Great Western Archive. Click on the wagon description for drawing. http://www.greatwestern.org.uk/wagon_draw.htm#

Thank you Platelayer, but I have seen that and they don't have the plan I am looking for.

These are "Diagrams" rather than "General Arrangement Drawings" but may be of some use.

NB I also have diagrams W3, and W7 to W 18 if needed.
