Looking good.  I would change it so that there are only 4 wheels on the truck though.

Isn't it a bit short? (disregard if you know what you are doing!)

Not for a pre-1960 railway wagon in Britain (compare with the length of coal wagons in pakBritain)

Aha, progress! However, the wheels are a little large compared to the size of the body: have a look at the pictures to which I linked in the other thread for an idea of the accurate proportion. (The size of the individual wheels on the first one were closer).

If you make the wheels a tad smaller, I think it will look very good :)

Looking good - hard to give a definitive view without seeing it as a simutrans object though...

I'd say  that the wheels should be half that size again...
