Macaw B railway wagon No. 84350 loaded with gun carriages at Swindon Works, c. 1915

Macaw B railway wagon No. 84350 has been photographed here loaded with 2 gun carriages awaiting dispatch from Swindon Works. The Macaw B was the GWRs standard bogie bolster wagon which, in normal service, was generally used to transport timber. During the war many of these wagons were requisitioned for military use, as shown by the writing along the side of the wagon specifying for military purposes only ; and where necessary, modifications and truss strengthening took place in order to accommodate abnormally heavy loads
