LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham

Kings Heath Station: mrkh734

A Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Ltd 10 ton, 7 plank, mineral wagon owned by CP Perry & Son

A Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Ltd 10 ton, 7 plank, mineral wagon owned by CP Perry & Son. The absence of a station on the wagon was probably because they had a presence at several stations being listed at Camp Hill between 1926 and 1933 and at Kings Heath in 1938. The company had been in business since 1912 and was to last until 1966. This was the only wagon built by the Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Company for CP Perry & Son and in all probability only had a small fleet of wagons. The numbering of the fleet by starting at 200 was a common practice by many merchants as it gave the impression of their being a much larger concern.
