CRA3/4/1/24 - Special Heavy Weight Wagon Diagrams

Photocopies of ex-Caledonian Wagons taken from an LMS Publication (NAS: NRM: DIAG/LMS/4, PRO: RAIL422/12), which covers all the pre-grouping company wagons inherited by the LMS. The original has BR date stamps and endorsements up to mid 1960s. Note the use of “truck” rather than “wagon” to describe the vehicles.

Stored in a multi-pocket display folder in numerical order, the individual pages do not have separate Archive Numbers.
