'Bass' Wagons around 1890

Recommended Posts

Isn't that simply a buffer stop? It would seem to be a strange place to set up an end loading bay in among all the sidings.

 

 

Yes, and there is another just behind the left hand van in the nearest siding. It is fairly obvious when you zoom into the photo.

The two North Staffs waggons look to be carrying spent grains, a byproduct with the consistency of porridge.

Your summary of the GWR vs Spillers case is accurate. I supplied some of the material used in writing the article (in pre-Google days!).

So that's why Spillers sold off all their vans! I've often wondered why. Wonder who profited/lost most out of the affair.
