The Arlesdale Railway owns several plank trucks. These open wagons are used primarily for transporting wool.

Technical Details

Basis

In the Railway Series, the trucks appear to be of a freelance design, running on bogies with open sides and plank walls at either end.

In the television series, the plank trucks are based on the standard gauge 7-plank open wagons, scaled down accordingly. They also have two extra planks incorporated into their design.

Livery

The plank trucks are painted coral pink with black frames and grey buffer beams.

Appearances

Trivia

  • Despite not having faces, in the Railway Series they are sentient, as they foolishly pushed Rex into the wool bales on the line.
