I Class Wagon (later IB) (7 Tons)

An early steel I wagon initially rated at 7 tons, I think the later chassis type may have seen this increased to 8, but have no evidence, so 7 it is. I had one blurred side-on photo and the basic diagram to work from, so the end detailing is pure speculation. Few in number initially, only a dozen or so made it to/through my era and this one doesn't seem to have been WH fitted hence the white square for through piping. Livery/weathering is deliberately heavy for a wagon very much at the end of its life, and likely they were mostly in terminal traffic or like. Few made it to be re-stencilled as IB's, so this is an I. Scratch styrene etc. body and brake gear on SEM chassis.
