From the 1870s over 400 3-plank open waggons were built by the GWR. Intially with rounded ends, these were later cut down.
From the early 1900s the GWR built many 5-plank open waggons. Intial batches were fitted with a bar along the middle to support a tarpaulin sheet to cover the cargo.
From the early 1900s the GWR built many 7-plank open waggons. Most had a door flap and one end to allow tipping to empty mineral cargo loads. Many lasted into the 1950s and beyond.

From the early 1900s the GWR built many 4-plank 'open C' longer waggons. In-game they carry cargo for the Construction Materials production chain, whereas in real life they were originally for carrying timber and later used for steel tubes.

Update: Improved detail.
Update: Improved texture for 5-plank versions (added nrml map). British 5-plank life from 50 to 40.
Update: Added 4 plank versions for construction material production chain.
Updated with the models also available as placeable scenery Assets.
Update: Added a new model GWR 5-plank (S), a sheeted version covered with a tarpaulin when loaded, but same spec as the original 5 plank model. Looks better for carrying grain, which was normally carried in sacks in the UK, rather than in bulk.

Ah, I see. I have have more mods and I have an excel sheet where I can order the cars by price and weight per item, and this car is currently (1890) the heaviest and one of the priciest (only the vanilla stake car costs more per item) on the list. So for me the loading speed makes it very unattractive to use it.

@gamebori - Thanks, but it's actually intentional. 4-plank GWR x0.5. 4-plank British x0.25. As a non-standard cargo combination from the vanilla game, it has a load speed penalty for balance.

the 4-plank wagons have a loading speed of 0.2x, I'd guess there's a typo in the code somewhere.

I've now added two 4-plank wagons for the Construction Materials production chain.

@Norfolk_Chris - I've stuck with the convention of the game's vanilla wagons. I added the covered version to make carrying grain less unrealistic. Releastically grain would have been carried in dedicated vans or metal bodied hoppers (http://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/gwrgrain) . But I'm not sure a dedicated grain wagon justifies the work involved, not when there's already a set of dedicated livestock wagons, and grain and livestock are equivalent in the game. I may add a completely different style dedicated wagon for machines (& tools) at some point in the future.

The 5 plank covered wagon is wasted as it carries the same load as the open version.
Covered wagons were not used to carry coal, iron ore stone or slag as there loads did not require covering. Could I suggest that they be modifed to carry manufactured goods, machines and grain (grain was never carried in open wagons).

I've now added versions of these waggons as placeable scenery Assets. And I'll be doing the same with most of my other waggons and some of the coaches and engines at some point.

Awesome! And thank you.

I've now added a new model of the GWR 5 plank covered with a tarp when loaded.

@AzureWind91 - That's actually quite a good idea. Thanks. I'll do that soon.
