Product Description

In the early days of the railways, most freight wagons were open wagons and were used to carry all types of goods. If the load was more delicate it was often protected with tarpaulin sheets. These wagons got progressively larger as locomotives became more powerful and demand for rail freight increased. In 1923, the RCH laid down standards and specifications for open wagons, and 5 plank wagons with a load capacity of 10 tons became the standard general good wagon and many thousands were built. 7 and 8 plank wagons were generally manufactured for transporting coal and coke and were extremely numerous. All these types of wagons were used well into the 1960s.
