This page of the website will have links to all the wagons on this site. but so far there are only links to some of them 

This Page is about some of the wagons that have been saved. It is not just locomotives that needed saving. Today with no short wheelbase unfitted wagons left on the main lines, someone needed to have saved some.

The very slow pick up freight, stopping at small way side stations are long gone. Todays airbraked trains of long wheel base wagons can now do 60mph. These freights are now in block trains.

The local pick freight would pick up one wagon from a small wayside station. This  train took the wagon to a larger freight yard. The wagons were then shunted onto to another freight train to another yard, were it would then be shunted into another pick freight. This traffic was slow. These trains used wagons that had change little over the years. It often took days to get from A to B.

Coal oil and fish and livestock plus parcels newspapers and mail were all moved by rail plus ever sort of cargo that day goes by road. Moving cargos like coal and iorn ore was why the railways were opened. The roads were often only muddy tracks when the railway first opened. Trains to carry people came later. Saving wagons is just as important as locomotives.

(There are other wagons at railways all around the site, not yet linked from this page yet)
