Wagons of the Wolds Way Lavender Railway (or similar)

G'evening all,

surfing Ian's new website and reading the 9 questions, I came across the Wolds Way Lavender Railway and began wondering, how wagons of a "real" working miniature/minimum railway of a 7,25" (or 9,0") gauge would look like, transporting i. e. that large amount of lavender (or apples in case of an orchard) ...

Visiting the website of the WWLR there can hardly be found material about the railway or that wagons respectively ...

Can someone please point me to a picture or a link showing more details of a wagon ... ?

Kind regards

Unfortunately my Wolds Way set is temporarily off-line as Fotopic went belly up.

I will be putting them back up soon on my own web-space but web-site work is on hold for now due to having a college ITQ project to finish off and work on Pebbles End for MOMING.

... thanks ... :D

Meanwhile I found another pic, showing a wagon being unload with a forklift at the rear of a tractor ...

I'm now wondering, what a wagon of an apple orchard railway (i. e. Faversham light railway) looks like. Does it look the same or different?

May I kindly ask for another pic/link in this case ... as pictures of the Faversham Light Railway seem hard to find too ...

EDIT:
Ahhhh ... knowing the right search options/keywords brings up much better results ... did now use "Faversham miniature railway": plenty of pictures showing locos and ride in cars ... but no harvest and transport of fruits in wagons ... :?

Kind regards
