A V-tipper wagon (also called a tipper truck) is a type of narrow gauge wagon. They are filled with slate, which is then either tipped into a mill or transferred to standard gauge trucks after being transported on the incline. They are one of the most used wagons at the Blue Mountain Quarry.

Technical Details


The tipper trucks are based on the Talyllyn Railway's V-tipper wagons.


The tipper trucks are painted brown and grey.
