Swishy,

Yep, exactly what I was thinking. With the exception of a tilt deck. Would be nice to have but pretty much every miniature railway I can think of has a decent unloading area, usually with decent raisable unloading facilities.

Locomotive is 500 wide, wagons are 470. Looking for something at least 2000mm wide just simply to have space to tie down between. Loco is 2900 but also looking to build a guards van to go with the rest of the setup that will be sized to suit whatever tray length I end up getting.

Have 10 of the wagons. Coupled together, they are exactly 1000mm long. So ideally, looking for something that I can either extend a tray to 5000mm, has a tray that is already 5000mm+ or can be extended above 5000mm with a frame extension and tray to suit.

Edit:

Didn't see the image. I would do a trailer just simply for practicality but I love the idea of a vintage truck. And my wife is onboard so you know... Strike whilst the iron is hot or something?
