I always liked the Preiser wagons. I wish they would have done additional parade wagons. The details are great. Took me a while to get them all.
Since part of the point of this whole exercise is leading to the Great Circus Parade, it is fitting that the next release is a wagon that was actually for the parade.
Next up is Preiser release #22150 the AG Barnes Baggage Wagon with a hitch of horses.

The next release was provided by Preiser once again, #22152, the Hagenbeck Wallace 2 Arch Cage Wagon, with a two horse hitch. You might note the cage also has an occupant.

The 3 arch was the last wagon, but Walthers had a few releases left in the Great Circus Train Accessories series, all provided by Preiser. I'm going to put them in the next 9 posts, these are not my pix, so credit to the original photographer, these are just used for educational purposes. I have managed to acquire each one of these.
You may have noticed a couple of numbers were skipped in the Great Circus Train Accessories series, I have no info what so ever about those 3 numbers.

You may also have noticed I skipped numbers 1390 and 1391 in the GCT wagon series, those two kits were a Barnes chassis and a Gollmar chassis to finish your wagons in a different time period. The main difference was wooden parade wheels or rubber wheels, I think.
