There were two batches of Carfit C built for ferry use during 1958. They were Continental diagram SFV 6212 and by 1983 seven remained as diag E212. Although only 40 wagons they found extensive use as under runners etc. with steel carrying bolsters and by the engineers. Various liveries and detail photographs and two rebuilt as spoil wagons.

Paul,
I've seen very few shots of these wagons loaded; the only one I can recollect outside this site was one of a self-propelled gun/tank destroyer being unloaded at Cambridge in one of David Larkin's books. However, on looking today at one of the 'summer specials' published in France (Des marchandises au Fret- Le Train, spécial 69, 1/2012), I found a photo (page 22) of a brace loaded with small tank containers of wine. The photo was taken in May 1965 at Dunkerque. The six containers, of two different sizes, are loaded traversely and secured by what appear to be wire ropes to the loops on the tops of the sides.
Regards
Brian
