The 7 plank wagon was the standard coal wagon up to the 1930’s when steel mineral wagons were developed. In 1923 the RCH produced a standard plan for the 7 plank wagon, as up to this time there were many variations depending on the builder and region. However, even after the standard was applied, many non-standard wagons were still used.
