Modeling Simple kitbash of a SEM M wagon
These two wagons were converted from regular M cattle wagons for the transport of bulls. A plank was removed and replaced by a lashing rail to which the bulls were tied up to. By the late 70's they seemed to be in regular cattle transport, the one time I saw one loaded it was loaded just like a regular M.
