Bain Wagon

Does anyone have one of these wagons? I want to reproduce one and need some measurements. Even some better pictures would help.

RE:Bain Wagon

I can't do much for information, but here are some pictures of the Bain wagon and Bain sled that Tom Patterson restored and sold at his auction in 2012.  I hope that helps.

Dan,

Rumor has it there will be another Whiz-N-Day in Friesland, Wisconsin on February 6th 2016 If you would like to see one in person.

RE:Bain Wagon

Thanks,
Massey must not have made wagons in the post horse days.

RE:Bain Wagon

Hope all these Bain / M-H wagon photographs are giving you some inspiration Dan?

Here is another very nice Bain which was sold in an Ontario auction back in 2008.

RE:Bain Wagon

I love those flared side boards!  In my mind, that's one of the features that set these wagons apart from the many others of the era!

Jerry,

If you like "the flared side boards" here is my M-H wagon and sleigh at a recent UK event.
