WAGONS

Transport of goods, whether raw materials or manufactured product, was the main reason for building railways.

When roads were inadequate and canals could not compete, railways carried goods quickly and cheaply. Wagons can be owned by a railway company or by an industrial user, and travel throughout Great Britain as traffic requires.

Our collection includes Scottish-owned and Scottish-built wagons, along with others from English and British railways which were used in Scotland or demonstrate types or design issues also relevant in Scotland.
