A fleet of lagged ferry registered tank wagons which may have worked from Quidhampton with Chalk slurry. No diagram or date of conversion is known to me.

Sorry Paul, please ignore my previous message - I have just seen the Sittingbourne Clayliner tanks on another page, so this lot must have been for other destinations - I thought they looked slightly different from the tanks I remember. Apologies.

Yes these did work from Quidhampton, and Burngallow. As ASM, I used to shunt them frequently at Sittingbourne in the early 1980's, when the travelling senior railman shunter was still busy at Queenborough. Usually 16-18 on, which we split in the freight loop and propelled each half into the Bowater's paper mill discharge shed on the other side of the road under rail bridge at the Chatham end of the station. Filthy business trying to uncouple and couple up - dirty white sludge all over you. The slurry was used for adding gloss to paper.
