    Here is 7796 all finished and, I would have loaded it's mate but, I've mislaid it's wheels :confused:. I thought that there was a better picture of the prototype here but can't see it at the moment. In that picture the bolts that hold the side planks are visible as is the draw hook linkage. It's possible to see a small link and so, I've interpreted this as a 5 link coupling and have shown this on the model. It's thought that by others more in the know than myself that the brake rack only had a parking place for the lever in the off position with no means of locking the brake on, this can be seen in one of the end on shots. When the new wheels arrive, I'll post a picture of both wagons.
