Wagons

The GCR has a very extensive range of wagons and goods vans. Many are used as working vehicles on the railway for the transport of rail, ballast and equipment. Still more are used to run demonstration freight trains at the GCR’s gala events illustrating a time when most goods were carried by rail. The Windcutter wagons are dealt with on a separate page.

The details of the wagons on the GCR will be added progressively.
