The tub wagon was once synonymous with quarrying and mining and the main rolling stock of many an industrial narrow-gauge system. Often moved by hand over temporary track to the working face for loading, then marshalled into rakes ready to be hauled away by the quarry loco to the crusher or for loading into standard gauge wagons at the interchange sidings. This freelance design of iron tub wagon was inspired by similar vehicles used in ironstone mining operations in North Oxfordshire up to the 1930s.
