The original BR iron ore hoppers of 22 and 24 ton payload. 161 and 162 were a continuation of a design produced pre WW2 for private companies. By the time I found a few of them they were in retirement! Some details. 160 was an LNER design and order continued by the early BR and had the NERly cross lever brake - only a conserved example available (see also LNER wagons) NOTE – These photographs are low quality scans and may not print well. Do not order larger prints.
