Surprising survivors far from their origins in internal use at Falmouth Docks. In response to :
Bartlett, Paul W. (1997) Mineral wagons at Falmouth docks Journal of the Historical Model Railway Society 16 (part 4), pp 130 - 131. M R Grocock responded that Dr. Scott noticed these during the 1970s but the Falmouth company only knew "they were purchased many years ago from a mainline company". They are believed to have been built in the 1870s for the Stockton and Darlington Section of the NER (Central Division). The NER cushion wheels are interesting, presumably fitted later.
