Transporter wagon

Post by Peter Butler » Fri Apr 16, 2021 9:42 pm

The latest kit from Jerry Irwin is a Transporter Wagon, complete with bogies for SM32 only. Mine should arrive tomorrow (Saturday), coincidentally on my birthday!
Transporter wagons are well known for their use on the Leek and Manifold Railway and many pictures have been published. However, Jerry has sent one of an unidentified wagon marked NSR? A quick Google search leads me to believe it may be Dutch Railways but that could be wrong.
Any ideas please.....

North Staffs Railway? Looks like a Leek and Manifold transporter wagon, I think?

Happy Birthday for tomorrow!

Thanks Andrew, now that you have said that I can see what I think is a Staffordshire Knot emblem on the wagon. I was puzzled by the chalk writing, the strange buffers and the very tall vacuum brake pipes, which I haven't noticed on L&M stock before.

Yes, the open wagon is North Staffs I'm sure. That is definately the N.S Knot in the centre. The 'NSR' branding is a bit unusual, it was normally just 'N S' I thought but I'm no expert and it may be period dependant, I'd guess.

So the transporter being L&M seems most likely.

Looks like the wagon appears in an illustration in this book.
