Remarkably ingenious!

I think the the Doll's house slates look superb! :D
I did a How To Video on the removable load, quite recently, the magnet on a wand was from a 'Pound' shop.

Thanks guys :D.
TimberSurf, yes that's the same technique in your video, only the one I followed did not mention the magnetic removal (I added that bit myself). However I think I should have used a larger piece of metal in the load (like you did) . . .

Some Slimrails wagon kits I ordered arrived and I have constructed the first one = a box van with sliding doors.

These kits are well made, quite reasonably priced and go together nicely - I fitted the door closed on one side:

and slightly open on the other side:

Here is the completed wagon behind Ronald:

Another Slimrails wagon - slightly different style ('cupboard' doors this time), lighter colours and a bit cleaner!

Now I'm on a roll with the SlimRails wagon kits I purchased, here are two open wagon bodies fresh from painting. Picking out the metal brackets and hinges in black was quite fiddly, but I think they have come out ok (for me!). Weathering will blur the joins between black and grey and tone down the stark differences in colour . . .
