    I photographed this wagon at Stratford Depot on 14-7-79, when it was tucked away in an otherwise empty shed. There was an Open Day in progress on that day, but the wagon was not on public display. It was not an Internal User at that date, my notes record the details as P 193685, built Metro Cammell 1945, lot No. 2286, dia. No. 1/122. It was scrapped by Roe Metals as B 193685 on 9-86. A great pity it was not preserved, there are only two examples of these ex-SNCF wagons still in existance, as far as I know.

    Agree Diagram 1/112 and a number built by metro-cammel 1946 for use in France post WW2 When repatriated joined BR stock. One example is preserved in NRM Shildon. The interesting bit is the lashing eyes as they could be sheeted as well as used for mineral traffic. I vaquely remember they had a slight problem with the doors as they could swing open unexpectedly. Parkside Dundas make a very nice model in both 4mm and 7mm scale

    A photograph, taken by Roger Silsbury, of this vehicle appears in the April 1986 issue of Motive Power Monthly. The photo caption reads "..... 041476, previous identity not confirmed, one of the 16-ton cupboard door minerals built by Metropolitan-Cammell to the order of the Ministry of Supply for use by the SNCF in France. When they were replaced by larger vehicles in 1950, most returned to Britain and were refurbished for use by BR. The branding, 'Not to be used for PW ballast or other engineers materials' was applied to the whole class following a serious accident when the cupboard door fouled the loading gauge. BR diagram was 1/112. This wagon had been in internal use at Stratford, and was waiting to go to Tinsley for scrap when seen on 11 January (1986) at Temple Mills."
