LBSC wagon types were the least up-to-date of the three companies, and did not influence the Southern Railway's later designs, although many further examples of the five plank wagons were built after 1923, presumably because Lancing Works was geared up to build them. The need to restore wagon stocks after the First World War probably led to the prolonging of a small capacity and non-standard design.
The standard LBSC open (D1369), with body style as built from 1912-26. The later wagons built by the SR mainly had flat topped ends. 400 of these were transferred by the Southern Railway to the Isle of Wight, where some remained in use until the end of steam and closure of Medina Wharf in 1966. With sheet rail & alternative flat end. You can see a preserved wagon at the Bluebell Railway.
BOXED: Packeted, excellent.
