GWR Mites Twin Bolster waggon used for timber, pipes and steel. Built from the 1870s, utilising two single bolster waggon chassis with a smaller wheel base. Each waggon’s bolster that supported the load was free to rotate and so these waggons permitted longer loads. One pair dating from 1881 has been preserved. ‘Mites’ was the telegraphic code.
