RHWA Collection

The WSH class of forty-five ballast hoppers numbered 30501-30545 were built in 1965 by Tomco. In 1970 fifteen hoppers (30501-30515) were converted to narrow gauge and reclassified XM.

In July 1975 fifteen WSH were written off (30516, 30517, 30519, 30521, 30523, 30524, 30525, 30530, 30531, 30532, 30523, 30534, 30535, 30536, 30541).
