  • Class: 7 and 8-plank Plank Open Wagons, Mineral Wagons

Ballast trucks are trucks that reside at The Little Western. They are used to transport ballast from the Arlesdale Railway to the North Western Railway.

According to the Railway Series volume, Oliver the Western Engine, ballast trucks were considered to be the worst of all for a long time. This was until Donald and Douglas managed to transform goods traffic on both the Main Line and the Little Western. In addition they stopped their teasing towards Oliver when he pulled S.C. Ruffey, their leader, apart.

Ballast trucks are based on 7 and 8-plank open wagons. They were later replaced by Mineral wagons.

Liveries

The 8-7 Plank Ballast trucks are painted in pink, blue, brown, grey & orange while the Mineral Wagons are painted Orange, Light Gray & Brown.
