Manufacturer description

The 16 Ton Steel  Mineral Wagon was a product of war time, when the requirement for coal soared and efforts were made to transport it more efficiently. This new wagon offered a 30% increase in haulage capacity over the pre-war wooden open wagons and as a consequence their popularity endured post war, when this wagon became the standard coal shifter in the newly nationalised BR. Over 300,000 wagons were built by many different construction companies (with the associated design differences that this caused) and these wagons carried on in service until 1987.
