Bachmann 393-050A WD WW1 Bogie Open Wagon Type D WD Grey OO9
The type D bogie open wagon was one of the more versatile wagons built for the War Department Light Railways. The two-part drop sides allowed the wagons to be emptied easily when carrying aggregates, while shells, rations, ammunition, timber, fuel and water in cans and even troops could be carried easily. The wagons could even be adapted quickly to carry casualties on stretchers.
After the war these general-purpose open wagons were purchased by narrow gauge railways in Britain, France and other European countries, especially where the railways' existing rolling stock had been damaged or requisitioned during the hostilities.
