FH - Bogie Horse Box


In 1961 the three remaining _FF_ bogie horseboxes were recoded to FH. They were FF 14, 15 and 16. The change was required because "F" as a last letter was being used to describe speed and bogie exchange capability.

All wagon bodies were scrapped 1962/1963. Two underframes were used to built _HR_ wagons for the transport of freight bogies between workshops.

The underframe of FH 16 was used to rebuilt two six wheel _HW_ vans. The two fixed wheel van bodies were joined to become a bogie vehicle.
