An open "K" wagon for transporting cattle, all of these wagons and vans were mainly constructed from the humble coffee stirrer, running on Accucraft W/L wheels and axle boxes. This wagon being an exception, as the running gear comes from Bradypus Enterprises

The "Empress" van, a bogie brake used for the conveyance of luggage, when the Island had a booming tourist industry, and also according to popular legend the vans were used as emergency ambulances during the TT races

I think I need an "H" class open wagon and a fish wagon to complete the set, and then of course there is/was the legendary "Kipper" van
