95% of the goods stock that runs on Touchwood is built frm Chivers Kits, but there are two PECO goods wagons that do run on the railway too.

Tank Wagon, Built for a Chivers wagon chassis kit, the tank is from an old Hornby ESSO tank wagon.

At present there are two of these two plank open wagons, at times they can be seen with different types of goods carried in them.
These are built from Chivers kits, and there are two more in the pipe line.

The railway has two of these four plank wagons which are both used for coal transport, one is full and the over is empty.
