Railway wagons and other subjects seed recorded during two visits to Royal Ordnance Factory Bishopton in July 1990 & August 1991. The site occupied 12 square miles, with still operating narrow gauge and standard gauge railway. Numerous elderly wagons remained, many deeply overgrown by trees, others out in the open with WW2 liveries remaining. Older TOPS coded wagons were not in mainline use. Detail photographs of many of the wagons are in their own collections.
