16 Cubic Metre Wagon (Milled Peat)
Type I, II and III
This wagon is used to transport milled peat from the bog stock piles to power stations and briquette factories.
The underframe and body are constructed in standard steel sections. The body sides, ends and flooring are sheeted with aluminium plate. Swaged ribs are pressed in the side and end sheeting for stiffness. A sprung buffer with coupling pin is fitted in each end of the underframe.
The underframe is supported on two diamond type four-wheeled bogies via a spherical swivel bracket and socket exactly as for the 16 cu. metre sod peat wagon.
Since these wagons are discharged by rotary tippler the bogies are permanently secured to the underframe while maintaining the flexibility of movement relative to the underframe.
The bogies are exactly the same as for the 16 cu. metre sod peat wagon.
The variations between Type I and II are minor only and are in respect of detail construction.
The variations between Type I and II on one hand and Type III on the other, are in detail construction, additional fitments to facilitate automatic equipment associated with tippler plant and the bogie centres are increased.
