Berry Wiggins operated from Kingsnorth at Hoo, Kent to Gloucestershire and also from Manchester. Their fleet was extremely varied using tank wagons obtained secondhand, many before WW2. Only a little of this variety is illustrated. Later wagons were built new for BW such as No. 170, which is notable for being one of the last unfitted, privately owned, wagons to be built, and unusually it has roller bearings. The fleet was condemned in 1971-2 and did not get TOPS numbers.
