S - Bogie Boxvan


In 1880, twenty boxvans were placed into service. The class given was S, the numbers 1 - 20.

They were for general traffic. By 1886, S 16 was used for milk transport. During 1889, two wagons, numbers 18 and 20 were modified for use as rasberry transports. They were back in normal traffic by 1900.

Several vans were written off in 1891. These vans were put back into traffic as 'Casualty Trucks'; assigned to engine depots to assist with rerailing activities.

All the vans were out of service by 1913, replaced by newer casualty van conversions from the _OO_ wagons in 1912.
