It has been some time since I have provided a post but works have been continuing.
As the reason for building the Bristol & North Somerset Rly was to transport coal from the Somerset coalfield you can never have enough private owners wagons. The publication of "Private Owner Wagons of Somerset" provides one a list of possible wagon one can build.
The Lamb Brewery N°1 is a Slaters' standard 7 plank Gloucester wagon with POW sides transfers with an Exactoscale underframe and brake gear. This is believed to have been only wagon the company owned.
The T.R.Freeman & Sons N°5 is again a Gloucester wagon, but this time a 6½ plank with again POW side transfers and Exactoscale underframe and brake gear. Apart from the collieries Freeman's were the only company known to have privately owner wagons on the Camerton branch.

I like the Exactoscale underframe' and have built a number of wagons with them. At first I use there instruction when building them but over time have refined my building method to make things easier.
