B&M ore & rail wagons

Postby cambrian51 » Sun Aug 14, 2016 11:30 am

Hello Andrew,
Following on from the discussion in the research section, I've opened this post here as we seem to be dealing with rolling stock now.
I hope that I've managed to upload an attachment which shows details of the B&M ore & rail wagons listed in the wagon register at Nantgarw. They can't have been as uniform as the register suggests. Harold Morgan used to reckon that, as it was probably being put together for the Great Western absorption, not a lot of care was taken in its preparation. They probably measured one wagon and anything similar was lumped together.
I'll extract some GW information and put that in a later posting.
Regards,
Stephen

The attachment may have stuck this time.

Hello Andrew,
Attached (I think) is a list of the ore and rail wagons that made it from the B&M to be renumbered by the GW. It's taken from Harold's notes which, I believe, are taken from the GW wagon registers. They're certainly more specific in terms of dimensions.
Regards,
Stephen

Fascinating (lack of) variation in dimensions.
I wonder what the difference was between the rail & ore and timber wagons: fixing of drop sides or ends perhaps.

Perhaps a central bolster for the rails?
