'Mystery' Wagon Plate


Castle

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

A little Christmas quiz for the wagon fans...

 

A friend of mine found the wagon plate buried under a pile of junk at 81E and he would like to know what it came from. It is badly wasted but the figures are still discernible. They read:

 

B924023, 30 T, Ashford, 1961, Lot No. 3343

 

And it looks like this:

Over to you good people. Many thanks for your time!

 

All the best,

Thanks Pix!

 

Nice one - that's a bit like a Macaw then. You have to talk GWR to me and my friends at 81E - we are a bit hard of thinking when it comes to off region!

 

All the best and seasons greetings!

Thanks to John too - pipped at the post by Pixie (almost a tongue twister that one!). Cheers and seasons greetings too.

The bogie Bolster Es when new were allocated to South Wales for the steel traffic so were sort of 'on region'. Some at least had 'empty to Cardiff WR' written on them. In a way they were GWR by lineage as they were shortened Bogie Bolster Cs which in turn were a BR version of one of the Macaws. Indeed the first batch of Bolster Cs had GWR plate bogies.
