Our latest item

DSCF2492

Thanks to Rob Cadman, who spotted the item on ebay, we were able to obtain, at a reasonable price, a small wagon repair plate somewhat unusually produced in a lead material, and CRC (Cannock & Rugeley Colliery) in origin, when they replaced an ex Midland Railway wagon – number 74545  6-1943.  Size, approximately 6″x 4″ .  Very likely this was a 12 ton coal wagon but this is not yet verified.

Many of these old Midland Railway wagons were withdrawn in the 1920s and 30s and replaced by the LMS.
