You Wait for Ages then Three Come Along at Once

My internet appeal for a wagon has indeed paid off.   Here is the latest of three wagons that have been offered to us and, despite appearances it is really just what we wanted.   It is a private owner coal wagon, presently on the Strathspey Railway at Aviemore.   The body is in quite a state but the ironwork is all there.

Not only that, it is free to a good home.   It is just the sort of wagon that would have delivered coal to Settle coal yard, by the water tower, in Midland Railway days.
