Next addition to the pack are a pair of GWR ballast wagons. These are all-steel construction.
A Pair of Minks
And to complete the pack we have a pair of Mink 'A' covered vans. These have quite a vintage, having been built way back in 1914. Many were sent overseas during the WW1. Most returned to work on the GW system until the 1960's. The pair modeled here are 10 ton and 12 ton versions.

A Pair of Loriots
We are pleased to announce the addition of a pair of Loriot Wagons to the Wycombe Railway Wagon Pack. We have opted for the D and L diagram.
On the Great Western, they assigned wagons code names for telegraphic messages. The name 'Loriot' was applied to all 'Machine Truck' wagons. This telegraphic name was painted on the side of each wagon, followed by a letter determining it's diagram. This letter is a code which refers to the the wagon type. The D stood for Plate Glass Wagon, whereas L stood for Match Trucks.

A selection of Private Owner 7-plank wagons have been created. These were generally for local coal merchants and would be delivered to the station yard as part of a goods train. The empties would be collected again and added to a goods train.
They were built by the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company.
We present 4 Thame merchants, 2 Wheatley and 2 for Oxford. These are in 3 colours - Dark Grey, Dull Red and Bright Red.

The GWR Damo A van is complete
Dynamic tail lamps have been added. These will show when the van is the rear-most vehicle in a formation. This is useful because they were often added to the rear of a passenger train.
The lamp is activated at the non-coupled end of a train by activating the loco headlights
Pictured are a line of Damo A's coupled together. The 3 roof types can be seen. The roof colour can be changed using code in the vehicle numbering field in the editor
