I have always lusted after one of these wagons but it did not fit in with collecting plan and I could not justify buying one on a whim. I now find that I am actually in need of a low loader, however, daft as it may sound I am not sure the actual load bed is long enough for what I want. Can I ask if you could measure to load bed and let me know.

The actual load bed is 200mm long & 100mm wide, David, but "Beavercreek" has already bought this wagon!

Many thanks, I can console myself with the fact that it's 2/3mm too short, and about the same too high, for my needs, I feel a new scratch building project coming on.

Yes, thanks for that. I've looked at this in the past but it is much too short. I have quite specific needs which I think can only be met by scratch building.
