Description

A useful wagon used for the carriage of all manner of long loads such as tree trunks, girders, rail, tubes and sawn timber, the D109 twin wagon set consisted of two wagons permanently coupled together by a link and pin. One hundred pairs were built in 1913 with heavy duty Iracier axle boxes and self-contained buffers.

Wagons of this type had a working life of 30-40 years and photographic evidence shows survivors until at least 1955. They would mostly have been seen in the industrial heartlands of Scotland and Northern England.
