Just to let you know, those wagons with the stationary seats like the one you posted are made for show, not really much driving unless the ground you drive on is as smooth as glass.

We have one like that on loan from a friend and every little bump you hit jars you from your tailbone all the way up to your teeth. Truthfully, I really like yours. Those spring seats are so much more comfortable.

Plus, I adore your team, they are absolutely stunning.

LOL don't you know how bumpy some of those wagons are! That freight wagon is very hard on you if your in the back, if your in the seat with me, it isn't too bad, those springs are pretty good.

As I get older, my body prefers a nicer ride...

Amazin...if you could pm me those names, I will look into it...thank you!

LOL, Oh, yeah. We've got an old iron wheeled wagon that we used for years. I hated riding in the back, that's why I usually just took a saddle horse and rode alongside the wagon.

Here is my team, I am quite proud of them...


This is a freight wagon we bought and restored. It is used for the few Civil War reenactments we have gone to for public education and when I still showed, would use it in the antique farm classes.

But, ours will be hunter green and no scroll work on it. Hydrolic breaks, step stairs in back, excited to finally get one of my own since I couldn't talk a good friend of ours to let us buy this one, that he restored and rebuilt for a lady:
