KCR BS Freight Wagons Post-1949
In 1949, the KCR obtained new wagons from BRC&W in England, which consisted of 45t covered vans, high and low-sided wagons, brake vans, flat wagons and oil tankers in order to make up for a loss in wagon after WWII.
The numbering system for these post-1949 wagons would have been a 6 digit number
First 2 digits: Weight of wagon in tonnes
Third digit: type of wagon (1-Flat Wagon, 2-Low-sided Wagon, 3-High-sided Wagon, 4/5-Van)
Fourth to sixth digit: Wagon number
Could anyone shed some light on these wagons? Thanks.
