C59 12ton 8 plank Mineral Wagon

LNER 12 ton mineral wagon    

D192 steel underframe wagon built by SR (their D1390). 1,850 of these were built at Ashford for the LNER in 1945-6. They were originally to have been 7 plank wagons to LNER D63, but presumably the SR only had stocks of timber of the size used for their 8 plank wagons.
Choice of RCH or LNER axleboxes.

C81 12ton 6 plank Open Wagon Kit, 9' wb wood underframe

L N E R 6 plank wagon    

Built from 1921 until the mid-1930s, there were over 20,000 wagons eventually. The ends supplied have the straight "Doncaster" style stanchions. These can be filed to represent the "Darlington" long tapered style of stanchion. Whilst there were not as many as the LMS 5 planks, they were still widely seen – see picture of Newhaven harbour below, which includes several LNER 6 plank wagons.
