The story given to me in good faith was Ken Werret' s father had a wagon repair shop and Ken lived on site in a caravan. He would sketch the basic body dimension in a note book and do the proper drawings years later from memory. I once made a Midland long low wagon from one of his drawings in the Model Railway News that look fine. Years later when Bob Essery published the works drawings in one of his books I compared it with his drawing, it was close but the details were in different places. Now without Ken's drawing I would never have gotten into wagon building for a long time so I am very grateful for his drawings in MRN all those years ago. If this storey is untrue I can only apologise to Ken's memory. I have sprayed the basic body colour and I will leave it to go hard and assemble it tomorrow and paint the interior wood colour. I should change the title of this thread to just Scratch Built Wagons reflecting the bigger picture of what I am working on.
