Having been presented with a set of W irons and some 3'6" wheels I had to find a use for them. Make unknown to me, they were originally sold in the 1960's in Melbourne as being suitable for a NSWGR S truck ( something there were not suited to). Looking in my plans I found the early version of the CHG brake van was a suitable candidate.
The model cost less than $10 to build from styrene, tie wire and paper clips.
If I had to purchase the donated components the wagon would have been about $40.
Who says O gauge has to be expensive!
