Private Owner Wagons : A Twelfth Collection


Product Information

ISBN:9781899889808 160 Pages,Hardback.

In this twelfth excursion into the neglected world of the Private Owner Wagon, the author examines the fleets of a prestigious educational institution, a Midlands factory which made the guns for the finest fighting ships of the First World War and a little known Surrey coal factor with an intriguing collection of wagons which almost defied identification. Also featured are war-torn wagons of several lesser owners who may have been otherwise forgotten, obscure coal merchants from Northampton and Oxford and an otherwise obscure Dorset brewery. A number of Gloucester RC&WCo. photographs are included, many published for the first time, with full descriptions of the wagons and their owners. These include several that were sold as secondhand by that company, mainly to small operators established in the 1930s and whose history is little-known, but the wagons themselves may have survived the Second World War with much of their lettering intact.
