About the prototype

During the First World War, narrow gauge railways played a large role in moving troops, munitions and supplies to the front line. The four wheeled ‘A’ class wagon came first followed by the ‘C’ class bogie wagon. Removable sides and ends gave flexibility but the parts often got mislaid or damaged in use, leading to the introduction of fixed ‘C’ class hinged sided variants. It is believed that no ‘A’ or ‘C’ class wagons remain in existence.
