This index alphabetically lists references in books to private owner railway wagons and tankers by company name. Each company is listed by an abbreviation of the book’s author and its page number. Coal Merchants who ran wagons are also included. Most of the references include either a photograph or drawing of the wagon.

It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of every private owner wagon built, merely of those that have appeared in books since 1969. Where there is only a description of the wagon or notes about the owner, but no photo or drawing, the reference has * next to it. Some of these [IP1/147 particularly] are as little as just a name with no location or any other details.

Locations of the companies are included unless it is obvious from the name on the wagon. If there is no location listed, particularly with the Welsh wagons, the name is the location (please check with an atlas).

In Bill Hudson’s first two books (BH1 & BH2), his index lists wagons by plate (ie photo) number rather than page. In this index, they are by page number. Wagons shown in the prefaces are listed by Roman numerals, eg BH2/vi. For his third & fourth volumes (BH3 & BH4), there are no page numbers so the references are to plates not pages.

Richard Tourret’s books are listed as RT, then RT2. There is no ‘RT1’.

Entries are usually by surname or place, for example ‘City of Nottingham’ is under ‘N’ not ‘C’ (but North, South, East or West are under N, S, E or W.) If there is likely to be any uncertainty, the name may be listed twice, eg, Griffith Thomas is under ‘G’ and ‘T’. ‘The’ at the start is ignored, eg ‘The Lothian Coal Co. Ltd’ is under ‘L’.

Comments in [ ] brackets are added by the compiler for clarity (he hopes!) Names in italics (eg [‘ROSSINGTON’] refer to the actual lettering on the wagon compared to the company name (in this case Rossington Main Colliery Co. Ltd) but this hasn’t been done in every instance.
