Part of my layout uses fine track and I will only use the forthcoming Gronk 08 shunter on that bit. My question: is there any short wheelbase rolling stock available (less than 38mm long)?

I've been experimenting on and off with designs for 12T wagons.....first cut in 2013:

Then a refined design in 2015 that was easier to make, but they didn't run all that well....probably because they were too light!

I've not got round to re-visiting the design ever since, unfortunately.
