HR Fish

I’ve added WEP compensation units with vacuum and Westinghouse pipes were from my spares box so could be from one of a number of sources such as Connoisseur, Alan Gibson or Laurie Griffin. The safety chains and screw couplings are by Laurie, and I added a representation of the door chains from twisted 5A fuse wire. Sprung buffer heads from Slater’s, the barrel from Ten Commandments, and the wagon sheet was homemade using a  HR pattern I found somewhere.

In reality the interior would have all been swept clean after unloading, and the sheet properly folded, but a little modeller’s license makes for what is hopefully a little scene that suggests the last trip was a little more eventful than usual.
