Mike, I wrote to Jim Richards several times inquiring abouts some wagons many years ago and received back some photographs from his collection. After more letters Jim asked me to build a private owner wagon for him. He wanted a particular wagon of a 12 ton coal wagon from one of the town's along the North Wales coast. I was building some similar wagons for myself but only 10 tons and offered one to him. I had a letter back with a sharp reprimand refusing my offer. It had to be 12 tons or nothing. I still have a bunch of his letters ( with his hard to read writing ) somewhere.
