4mm RTR wagons

Note: This list includes scope for conversions to other diagrams. Most conversions are straightforward. Those marked (*) are less so. The list is in GWR diagram order. Thanks to John Palk for the original version of this list. It seems that manufacturers share tooling for some of the wagons listed.
