Nice video, those coal cars and log cars the gray ones are really nice. Who manufactures those or did you build them. I would like to get some of those. Thanks

Hi
There are two sorts of open (coal) wagons on my railway.

One type was made by adapting cheap Chinese gondola cars ( see - How I bashed a couple of cheap US style gondolas into UK open wagons )
The other type was scratch built using my own resin castings on HLW wagon chassis ( see - How I made my third batch of open wagons )

There are two types of timber wagons, both are simply repaints of LGB wagons
One type is based on feldbahn wagons ( see - How I weathered some LGB Feldbahn timber wagons and added pit prop loads )
The other is based on ToyTrain stake wagons ( see - How I created some flat wagons (with loads) )

Hope that info is useful

I've also made a couple of videos showing what I did

Thanks for that info, you must have spent a lot of time on those cars because the result is fantastic. It is funny that LGB never made a weathered looking car when there are so many modelers that love that look. I just watched the video of the gray gondola that was orange man you have real talent to do all that cutting and measuring, wow.
