    1921, 18t, 80mph, 20 mail/goods/passengers.
    A small, high-speed van. Useful for adding goods to express trains early in the game.

    Brake Van Brake Van
    1921, 20t, 60mph.
    Steam freight trains often did not have brakes on all wagons, so one or more brake vans were required to add braking force. The brake van also gave the guard a place to ride.
    Mineral Wagon Mineral Wagon
    1921, 14t, 45mph, 16 tons of coal/ore/gravel.
    Traditional coal wagons on UK railways were unbraked, simple and slow. Later wagons were made of steel rather than wood, which made them much easier to maintain.
    Tanker Wagon Tanker Wagon
    1921, 18t, 60mph, 18 kL of oil/livestock/goods/plastic/fuel oil.
    Heavy, two- and three-axle tanker wagons were a common sight on UK railways, carrying everything from crude oil to milk (represented in the UKRS by livestock).
    Livestock Van Livestock Van
    1921, 16t, 45mph, 16 items of livestock.
    The railways carried a lot of livestock, in the days before heavy road transport.
    Goods Van Goods Van
    1921, 16t, 60mph, 18 crates of goods,
    14 tons of grain/lumber/plastic.
    The mainstay of the railways was the goods van. These vehicles had better suspension and were treated more kindly than the mineral wagons, allowing them to travel at faster speeds. They also often had their own vacuum or even air brakes.
    Open Wagon Open Wagon
    1921, 16t, 60mph, 18 crates of goods,
    14 tons of grain/lumber/plastic/clay.
    An alternative to the "covered" van was an "open" wagon. Specially sealed open wagons called clay hoods were used to transport clay slurry.
    Grain Hopper Grain Hopper
    1921, 16t, 55mph, 16 tons of grain.
    A bulk hopper, used to deliver grain to industrial users such as breweries.
    Bolster Wagon Bolster Wagon
    1921, 13t, 60mph, 18 crates of goods, 18 tons of steel,
    14 tons of wood/lumber/plastic.
    In addition to heavy loads such as steel coils, flat wagons were used to carry containerised goods. These containers could also be carried by road, for a true door-to-door service.

    Mineral Hopper Mineral Hopper
    1965, 19t, 65mph, 25 tons of coal/ore/gravel/clay.
    These steel, air-braked hoppers were designed for "merry-go-round" unit trains, which travelled constant loops between coal mines and power stations.
    TTA Tanker Wagon TTA Tanker Wagon
    1960, 22t, 75mph, 25 kL of oil/livestock/goods/plastic/fuel oil.
    A larger, air-braked tanker. Built onto a solid steel girder underframe, it doesn't need the external bracing of the older designs.
    Stock Car Stock Car
    1980, 20t, 65mph, 20 items of livestock.
    This is a fictitious vehicle - in reality, all livestock in the UK now travels by road, and no new railway livestock vehicles have been built since the 1940s.
    Speedlink Van Speedlink Van
    1960, 20t, 75mph, 25 crates of goods/lumber/plastic.
    A relatively small number of these high-speed vans were built, as general goods trains were soon replaced by container trains.
    Grainflow Hopper Grainflow Hopper
    1960, 21t, 75mph, 20 tons of grain.
    A similar vehicle to earlier grain hoppers, but with improved suspension and brakes.
    OTA Timber Truck OTA Timber Truck
    1980, 18t, 70mph, 25 tons of grain.
    Converted from obsolete vans, the OTA is a useful vehicle for carrying less-than-log-sized pieces of wood.

    TEA Tanker Wagon TEA Tanker Wagon
    1990, 28t, 90mph, 35 kL of oil/livestock/goods/plastic/fuel oil.
    A large, modern bogie tanker.
    Polybulk Hopper Polybulk Hopper
    1988, 19t, 92mph, 30 tons of coal/goods/grain/ore/clay/gravel.
    A large, lightweight aluminium bogie hopper. Available in both open and covered forms, to carry just about any bulk load.
    Bogie Bolster Bogie Bolster
    1960, 16t, 70mph, 30 crates of goods, 30 tons of steel,
    26 tons of wood/lumber/plastic.
    A bogie flatbed truck, for carrying heavy, flat loads.
    3x Freightliner Container Rake Freightliner
    1972, 50t, 110mph, 120 crates of goods.
    An articulated rake of three container wagons. The fastest and most efficient way to move goods around your network.
