Antics Special Edition ANT046 00 Gauge Gloucester 5 Plank Open Wagon Lettered J Dangerfield Gloucester

Gloucester coal merchant J Dangerfield ordered two 8-ton wagons from the Gloucester RCW company at the end of 1907. Two newly built wagons, numbered 1 and 3 were delivered in January 1908, with no.1 duly photographed by the wagon company photographer.
It is unclear if Mr Dangerfield already had a wagon numbered 2, decided to only use odd numbers, or simply wanted to appear to be operating a larger fleet.

James Dangerfield was the son of a Gloucester dock labourer and joined one of the railway companies as an engine cleaner. By 1901 he had established his own business as a coal merchant, with a depot at the Midland Wharf. The two new wagons in 1908 were registered with the Midland Railway, which would have provided Mr Dangerfield with direct routes between Gloucester and collieries in the North Somerset, Forest of Dean, Midlands and Nottinghamshire coal fields.
Wagon number 1 was sold to Toomer & Co of Reading in 1930, and John Dangerfield appears to have retired from business by this time.

The Stroud based firm of Wood & Rowe, formed by the partnership of Mr Miles Frederick Wood and Mr Charles Mortimer Rowe, were engaged in a range of business, being listed in trade directories as coal, salt and builders merchants. Drain covers around Stroud can still be found bearing the Wood & Rowe name, so the company evidently had some iron manufacturing capability. The partnership was mutally dissolved in 1922, notice given in the London Gazette lists the business as Coal and Builders Merchants at Cheapside, Stroud, Nailsworth, Ryeford and Stonehouse. The business was to continue under Mr Wood using the same company name.

The company certainly had a significant requirement for railway wagons, 8-ton 5 plank opens 23 to 31 being ordered as a batch from the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon company in 1905, following on from several orders for 10-ton 7 plank wagons. The 5 plank wagons may have been ordered for their usefulness in both the coal and building supply trades, lower sided wagons often being preferred for aggregates to prevent gross overloading, thus keeping the wagons busy all year round.
Many years later number 25 of this batch was photographed at Frocester station on the Midland Gloucester to Bristol route delivering a load of coal.

<p>This volume is a companion to the author's previous book on wagons of 
the Forest of Dean. It takes a look at all of the known private owner 
wagon owners and operators based in Gloucestershire with almost 250 
wagons being identified. It is illustrated with over 450 photographs, 
items of ephemera and maps, many of which are previously unpublished. 
Whilst the majority of the wagons belong to coal merchants there are 
also those for quarries, mills, a brewery and chemical works. As well as
 identifying the owners, the opportunity has been taken to give as much 
detail of their business as possible to give some idea as to how large 
the concern was and how long it was in operation. Thus, as well as being
 of interest to the private owner wagon enthusiast the volume also gives
 much industrial and social history for the county.</p>
