Pallet van (Palvan)

Pallet van B769924

Historical note:  all identification had been removed from this van before it was acquired, and so nothing definite is known of its previous history.  It has therefore been given a running number that is appropriate to its type, but which is unlikely to be completely accurate. This wagon suffered fire damage in 2018 and was rebuilt by contractors, returning in early 2020.

Built Probably British Railways, Wolverton, 1960 or 1961
Load capacity 12 tons
Length over buffers 20' 6" (approx 6.2 metres)
Previously worked British Railways, and then the War Department
Entered collection Purchased from the Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Trust in 2007
Current status Operational
