About the blog

For the past forty-odd years I have pursued an interest in the Railways of Germany however as the end of the line beckons, I have returned to the railway that has always run past my home - the Southern.

20t Oil tank wagon

On Saturday, a pair of Bachmann 20t anchor mounted tank wagons were purchased from Shillingstone station

They are intended for the miscellaneous goods train and represent two tank wagons for the Cattewater Oil Depot in Plymouth. 

Shell Mex and British Petroleum introduced a large fleet of anchor mounted 20ton capacity tank wagons in 1948 - 49. They were built by a number of manufacturers. Many were later lagged for heavy oils and had a side heating coil.
