British Railways discouraged the use of private-owner wagons as they sought to build the new nationalized system in the 1950s, but by the 1970s the policy had changed and from then on multifariously liveried private freight traffic became a major component of the railway scene. Aimed primarily at the railway modeller this book reviews the many wagon types, their cargoes and owners in 220 colour photographs.
