Cattle Trucks


The North Western Railway owns many cattle trucks, which are used for carrying cows and bulls. The circus also owns some cattle trucks, which are used for carrying animals for circus performances.

Basis

In the Railway Series most of the cattle trucks were based on LMS cattle wagons. In the TV series they were GWR variants.

Livery

Cattle trucks are painted brown, orange and yellow. Brown is the most common livery they are seen in.

Trivia

  • In more recent seasons, cattle trucks do not have faces.
  • From the second to the fifth season, the cattle trucks models were constructed out of Tenmille kits, which are still made today. From the sixth season onwards, the cattle trucks models were scratch built.
