South Wales Mineral Traffic

The Welsh Union was intended to bring goods, particularly coal, from South Wales to the ports of Lancashire and Cheshire. The WMCQR 0-6-2T engines seem typically to have hauled 20-25 loaded wagons. So I’m aiming initially for 20. There are some Slaters pre-printed (Ystradgynlais, Ocean, Pascoe) but all the rest are done letter by letter using Modelmasters alphabets. All the collieries depicted were in action duting 1906-1908 and situated on the railways of the Union: Taff Vale, Neath and Brecon, Brecon and Merthyr, and Midland Vale of Neath. (as yet nothing from the Barry or Cambrian). Eight more to go.
