This open wagon was built in 1962 by BR Derby to Diagram 1/058, Lot 3429. It was known as a ‘Dace’ for Telegraphic purposes and was classed as a ShocHood B originally. The hood has been removed. The original number was B726399. It is privately owned and came to Midsomer Norton in 2006 on indefinite loan.
