James Corrall started out as a Brighton greengrocer in 1856 but soon expanded his business interest as a coal merchant. He eventually co-owned many ships that that transported coal to the south coast and as rail transport expanded, he acquired a large fleet of 5 and 7 plank open wagons.
These wagons were not just seen in local coal yards in Brighton, Kemptown and Hove but eventually in coal yards all over the south east region. Corrall are still in business today as a supplier of coal, making them one of the oldest established businesses in the Brighton area. The model is a weathered 5 plank version open wagon based on the earlier red livery that Corrall and Co painted their stock.
