Class C (Class N before 1900) ex GSR Sheep trucks

This small group of wagons were inherited by the W.A.G.R. when the G.S.R. was taken over in 1896.

They were much shorter than the early W.A.G.R. sheep wagons being only 14'-0" long and were numbered 4382 - 4385 by the W.A.G.R. They appear to be identical to the original MRWA D class wagons and could be the missing four from that class.

They were written off as follows:

1950 4382, 4385 written off
1953 4383 written off
1954 4384 written off

Superficially they were quite long lived but they may in fact have been replaced by standard C class wagons in the early years of the 20th century. Further photographic evidence will be needed to confirm this. The equivalent MRWA wagons were rebuilt before the second world war.
