I saw some pictures of the real wagons online, and decided to build one on a smaller scale. This was built in mind to put flowers on to display on a patio, porch, or sun room setting. I don’t thank it would hold up for kids to play with thus the no riders sign on the front. Although with a little more beefing up I’m sure it could be made for kids to play with. I made this wagon from scraps I had laying around the shop it was a fun project, and considering there were no plans it turned out like I wanted.

G’Day Bill,
That’s one fine railway wagon, but I’d get the pot plants in it quick as if the little children see such a good looking unit they’ll be off with it….
