Spreading the load

With both wagons now at the same stage, with all the external struts in place on the hoppers, thoughts turn to what to tackle next.

I think I'll go below decks and start on the doors that spread the ballast. I never took any measurements of these so there's going to have to be a lot of extrapolating from photographs and the known knowns, as well as a bit of trial and error to begin with.
