I don't know is the name is the same i English, but there is a very fine straw material used for flower arrangements "Sisal", that is perfect for modelling hay (and birdnests). I have not yet found out in what shape hay was delivered an distributed to cities at the time. So I don't know what waggotype I need for that either.
I would like a specialty type waggon for "Kleinwieh", used for chicken (and sheep). I had one, but the roof shape was an era givaway.
The winewaggons are among the visually finest of Märklin models, so they can do without sound.😂
I'm doing a similar project for a local persontra
in, with two axle coaches with open plattforms. That one is nearer completion.
Seated passengers are mostly simple Chinese make, but the plattforms and luggage car, I now have an impressive collection of figurines for.
And I have worked out a magnetic brake-hose arrangement. The passage-ramps inbetween coathes is not q
uite decided yet.
Oh I'm sorry I got very OT - but I think we could add a lot to our trains. Especially sounds!
