Living Museum of the Great Western Railway

No 117993 - Open Goods Wagon

117993 has a sloping plank at the bottom of the door to make it easier to wheel sack trucks into it.  This vehicle has been fitted with a sheet support bar to help keep the load dry.  It has been restored to 1920s 16” GW livery.

The wagon was completely rebuilt and put back into service in pristine conditon, complete with tarpaulin in summer 2011.
