Saxa Salt wagon Nr.252, Scottish Railway Exhibition
Wagon designed for carrying bagged Cheshire salt, similar to a coal wagon except for the permanent roof to keep the salt dry. The body of this wagon, built around 1900, was acquired in 1994, having been found on a farm in Hawick. It has been repainted in its 1920s livery and rebuilt onto a set of steel frames from a tank wagon. It would have originally had wooden frames.
