For plastic wagon kits I would suggest Parkside Dundas, Cambrian, and Chivers Finelines. The first two come with wheels, for the latter you will have to buy Romford, Markits or equivalent and the pinpoint bearing inserts for them to run in. I have been particularly pleased with the quality of the Chivers kits; as an example he has a BR(SR) Lamprey which is very fine with small fold up brass detailing parts. As regards weight for wagons, I would improvise with old steel washers or whatever was to hand, and only resort to lead if space was really short; which may be cheaply purchased as code 5 sheet for flashing from a builder's or plumber's merchant.
