In 2021 I started collecting OO gauge rolling stock with a view to building a small layout based on a wagon works. Here are some pics of wagons and parcels vans. The period being modelled is the early 1970s. All have been weathered and had Kadee couplings fitted to facilitate hands-off shunting. Most have been weighted to provide some inertia, and also had replacement non-magnetic wheelsets fitted to avoid being pulled towards the under-track magnets required by the Kadees. For each wagon type it's generally been preferable to stick to a single manufacturer as there are usually minor differences in shape or size which would be especially noticeable in mixed rakes.
