That is so cool! I would love to have a wagon like that. Did you buy it or make it?

thanks jimmy for showing that. would you reckon on about 16 miles a day between stops? i have a 3/4 size london trolley that i am slowly repainting, and have the wheels ready to replace the old ones. have been toying with the idea of adding a canvas bowtop, or the square type canvas top that you dont see so often, but seeing yours, a lift off 'accomodation' would be good, to make it more versatile.

15 to 20miles a day with a few stops is comfortable for the horse i normally set off 4.30 am and pull in for an hour about 7 am to let most of the work traffic get through beleive me you can cause some tailbacks the police begged me 1 time to pull in it took over 45 mins for the cars to get going normal lol
