A couple of posts back I showed a recently finished wooden mineral wagon. I have two of them, but I am still a few wagons short of a train.
It might be a bit strange then to build a maintenance wagon on one of the precious underframes I have completed. Would it not make more sense to concentrate on finishing a whole train?
The Thamshavn Railway reused this type of underframe for several mainance wagon projects. But this was done after WWII, and my period of interest is really 1930-35. So this project is quite “useless”. But then, what is the use of model trains? If it gives you enjoyment, build it. It is absurd to build something out of duty if you are a hobbyist. And the model looks darn good to me, and thats all the justification I really need.
