Freight for the 66

A loco needs something to haul. In the case of the Class 66 in my last post that would be freight of some sort. My limited reading so far indicates that these locos commonly hauled unit trains of things like coal-wagons, loads of various types of stone, steel products such as pipes or structural girders etc.
They also hauled departmental works trains/wagons of rails,ballast, wheels and the like.

So the other day I took delivery of 3 types of modern fright wagons to form various trains. I'll now start weathering them and making/adding various loads for them.

So I got 4 each of these 2 types of modern open-wagons.

 I also got 2 of these bogie wagons.
