Hornby OO AAC Amalgamated Anthracite 20-ton Steel Open Wagon R6498


One of the big South Wales colliery groups Amalgamated Anthracite Collieries made full use of these large capacity wagons and reduced haulage rates offered by the GWR.

Robustly built in steel the 21-ton open wagon conveyed more coal for considerably less empty wheight than comparable wooden 10-ton capacity wagons.


The GWR management vigerously promoted the use of 20-ton steel bodied wagons for bulk coal transport in the 1930s. Many of the large South Wales colliery groups took advantage of the preferential rates offered for the purchase and use of these wagons, though their use was often limited by the lower overhead clearance in the loading screens at older collieries.
