Metropolitan Railway 10 ton Wagon No. BW4
This three plank open ballast wagon arrived in 2001 from the Bluebell Railway, Sussex. Little is known of its history.
It uses grease for lubrication, which was discontinued on railways because of its inability to flow until warmed up, and its tendency to catch fire due to friction. During 2004 the waggon had much restoration work done by a local Scout group.
