  • GWR Horse Traffic and Horseboxes - Part 1

    John Lewis

    Issue 76 (2010)

    p.212

    John Lewis turns his attention to the story of the horseboxes. These were a very common sight on the railways, but they have attracted very little attention in print. The first part of his study looks at the traffic itself, which - although it was simply the conveyance of horses - varied considerably in its ends. The boxes were commonly used in military traffic, particularly in the years before the Great War, and also for horse sales, race meetings, circuses, agricultural shows and many other gatherings, quite apart from a single box on private hire. Subsequent parts will analyse the different designs of horseboxes built by the company from the 1870s through to the late 1930s, providing another comprehensive study of a neglected subject.

    John Lewis introduces the second part of his horsebox study by considering the individual vehicles, starting with those older 'boxes built between 1870 and 1901 (Diagrams N1 to 9). None of these survived beyond the Second World War, but, as we shall see, they set out the standards to which the later diagrams largely conformed.

    John Lewis considers the final design of vehicle, illustrated on the N16 diagram. These 1936-7 boxes lasted mainly into the 1960s, by which time road transport had all but taken over the business, although they were given a new lease of life in the late 1950s transporting calves.
