Description

Around 1,500 of these dropside wagons were built by various contractors. Most survived until the Second World War, but only 339 reached Nationalisation.

All were fitted with oil axleboxes, and with lifting link brake gear as shown in the photo opposite. They were uprated to 13T capacity by the LNER.

The wagons would have been used for general goods traffic, and would have been seen throughout the country.
