british style chassis for four wheel wagons

i am trying to see if there is any rolling stock produced in TT with the rather dainty looking chassis used by british inspired railways:

i have looked through tillig's online cattledog and have drawn a blank. i imagine something from 'epoch 1' might be suitable but tillig don't seem to make any guterwagen from that era and most european four wheel wagons look a bit more heavy duty than what i want. is there another manufacturer i should be looking at? i do not need wagons, really, just chassis ...

i had thought that some of those old style german beer wagons might be useful but cannot find any.

Here are a couple that I have. They are from Tillig several years ago. I may have others similar. Don't have catalog numbers. If they look suitable I can dig into the old Tillig catalog for the numbers.

the only euro wagons i have are by BTTB and they look similar to the ones on these. i suspect i may have to just bash the 3mm ones about a bit ... it's weird because you'd think the 3mm ones would be bigger but the actual size compared to the BTTB ones is a little smaller. euro wagons clearly have a very different design to the brits.

3mm too big, Euro 1:120 too clunky.

hmm, looks like Lima N gauge provide something that can be made into a master for a side sill, W-irons and axleboxes with springs.

... guess i owe one to Lima for being 'accidentally TT'.
