– The first step in this build is to build the bed that the carriage will ride on.

– This is a very basic basic construction that will not need much explaining.  If you do not have the materials on hand that I use for this build, just substitute with whatever you have that will work.  As long as the rails are the proper width apart and are straight and strong enough, you can use whatever materials you have.

 

I use 4″ x 1 1/2″ steel channel to build the rails.  I also use 1″ steel angle for the wheels to run on.

Please use the comments below for questions

 

 

In the Below picture, the rails are 20′ long with the bunks spaced at 4′ apart.
