Iron Ore Hopper Wagon

M691781 20 ton hopper wagon was built in 1937 for the LMS Railway to diagram D1941. Nearly 2500 of these iron ore wagons were built, commonly used in the Northampton Iron Ore quarries but few survive today.

Before preservation the wagon found itself at the Cantley Sugar Factory, before being sold to Mangapps Railway. More recently it has been purchased by some members of the Churchill 8F group for restoration.
