More on Caledonian Wagons - A Supplement to Caledonian Railway Wagons & NPCS
Published jointly by the Caledonian Railway Association and Lightmoor Press, as was the seminal “Caledonian Wagons and Non-Passenger Coaching Stock from 1847 to 1923”, this Supplement adds valuable and fascinating information which has since been uncovered.
When the original book was published early 2013, there were inevitably a number of loose ends and unresolved questions. Since then new evidence and photographs have come to light which, coupled with contributions from members of the CRA Forum, have answered many of the queries and added new information about the diverse wagon fleet, its development and livery.
The volume includes a discussion on the financial aspects of wagon building, maintenance and replacement, followed by a detailed analysis of the CR’s search for the optimum capacity mineral wagon, illustrated by drawings of proposed wagons discovered in the Stratford Works collection at the NRM. Chapters on private trader wagons, merchandise and livestock wagons, and special class designs are followed by a revised description of brake van development, including a section on the extensive use of seemingly primitive brake wagons well into the 20th century. Finally an appendix gives details of the number and type of wagons built by outside contractors, who supplied the CR with almost all their new-built wagons before the Drummond era.
The book comprises 72 pages of text and illustrations, 275 mm by 215 mm, printed on gloss art paper with colour laminated printed card covers and is lavishly illustrated with drawings and photographs.
