EB Class cold storage vans and EBE class explosives vans

The final class of W.A.G.R. four-wheeled cold storage van appeared in 1961. Production continued until 1965. These vans used the post-war 18'-0" steel underframe with modified springing in an effort to improve the riding. They were built as follows:

1961

1962

1964

1965

15301-15305

15306-15315

15316-15320

15321-15330

 
 

After a relatively uneventful career they were written off from 1979 as follows:

1979

15302, 15313, 15315, 15318, 15323, 15327, 15330

1985

15321

1986

15303, 15304, 15306, 15307, 15309, 15314, 15316, 15319, 15320, 15322, 15324, 15325, 15326

 

Some escaped this fate immediately to become class EBE explosive vans. These were 15301, 15308, 15310, 15317 and 15328, 15329 in 1981 and 15305, 15311, 15312 in 1982. These vans were written off in 1985 (15311) and 1986 (the rest).
