A Brief History of the I.C.I. Hopper Wagons - this is my own short article on these wagons which conveyed crushed limestone between Tunstead and Northwich from 1936 to the end of 1997. Six of these wagons have been preserved. Only six now remain in store at Tunstead. For the whole story why not buy the book !!

I.C.I. Wagon Locations - this page lists the current locations and disposal details for the former I.C.I. hopper wagons as described in the above article.

Hazel Grove Freight Timetable - all of the freight services booked to pass the High Level Junction at Hazel Grove are listed here in three sections covering Monday to Friday; Saturday and Sunday workings. As with any timetable there will be last minute changes and cancellations to these services.

PCA Centre Depressed / Vee Tank listing - All of the number ranges and owners of these wagon types are listed on this page. ** Listing fully revised and updated December 2005 **

Tiphook Bogie Hoppers - a full listing of these wagons including those that have been converted into JJA Autoballasters for Railtrack and GTRM. Updated February 2003 to include GERS 13005.

RMC Liveries - a complete listing of the liveries carried by these wagons correct as of March 2003. A spin off from my own research into the livery carried by the first Bachmann 4mm scale model.

I will add some more of my work when it has been edited and tidied up !!
