There are two number series of Bulk Salt wagons of similar design. As can be seen they were in a dreadful state within a few years of use. Some were transferred to Aggregate use.
I would like to dedicate this collection to the memory of my friend and early mentor David Jenkinson whom died whilst I was scanning these slides in April 2004. David may have hated these wagons - they had no style, were ugly, unkempt and were not finished in Midland Red/LMS Crimson or BR Maroon [which he was adamant was the same colour just applied with less and less care]. But they earned their keep and were purposeful, which he respected. However, 40+ years ago he was wonderfully kind and supportive of a callow youth whom he recognised was a kindred lover of railways, especially rolling stock and was willing to spend a life recording their history. A glass to you David! Love.
