Class GE high-sided goods wagons

This class of over 2000 wagons was built between 1945 and 1951 by Midland workshops and Tomlinsons. They were build in such large numbers in order to replace older, life expired wagons in classes G, GB and GC.

The Midland built wagons took random three and four digit numbers from written off wagons whereas the Tomlisons built wagons were numbered in large blocks of newly issues (5 figure) numbers.

The M.R.W.A. also used this design as their class AE. Some of the M.R.W.A. wagons differed in that the diagonal strapping was external rather than internal.

A new variant of the class appeared in 1949. These wagons were fitted with ridglepoles and classified GER. At about the same time a lot of old GC class wagons which had been fitted with ridgepoles were written off and I believe that the GERs were a direct replacement for these older wagons. Meanwhile production of the GEs also contunued.

From 1965 CXA class sheep truck chassis were used to build further members of the class. Superficially these wagons look similar to the standard GE but in fact the underframes were quite different. The CXA class had conventional solebars unlike the standard GE chassis. Visually the give away is the deeper side sills on a wagon rebuilt from a CXA.

From 1963 cane support brackets were fitted to the sides. They can be seen in use here in the picture of GE 34, a converted CXA.

From 1973 the ridge poles were removed from GER class wagons and these wagons were reclassified GE. These two events didn't necessarily happen at the same time with some wagons at least losing the ridge pole well before the new classification was painted on the side.

In addition I have no record of when (or if) the following wagons were reclassified GEF but they seem to have been written off as GEF as follows:

1989

1689, 1838, 3689, 8368, 13048, 13235, 13236, 13289, 13292 believed to have been written off as GEF

1990

1453, 11543, 11725, 11851, 11939, 12131, 12322, 12355, 12404, 12412, 12415, 12416, 12422, 12431, 12501, 12504, 12522, 12555, 12567, 12584, 12653, 12712, 12723, 12750, 12837, 12918, 13116, 13204, 13221 believed to have been written off as GEF

 

The wagons unaccounted for are:

GE

1482, 1495, 3389, 3429, 3667, 3857, 3890, 4606, 7438, 8016, 9016, 11439, 11464, 11597, 11630, 11659, 11667, 11716, 11719, 11850, 11852, 11982, 11996, 12032, 12058, 12104, 12121, 12149, 12159, 12201, 12297, 12302, 12312, 12359, 12366, 12374, 12378, 12399, 12418, 12493, 12569, 12664, 12698, 12729, 12737, 12795, 12808, 12945, 12976, 12980, 13050, 13162, 13181, 13187, 13197, 13276,

GEF

8295, 8627, 11641, 12019, 12138, 12160, 12179, 12186, 12191, 12202, 12230, 12241, 12280, 12751, 12801, 12823, 12861

 

Almost inevitably, as in many W.A.G.R. classes, there has to be at least one oddball wagon. In this group it was GE13059 - converted from a GER in 1976 - which got an all steel body at some point before it was written off in 1986.

 

Return to class G group
