Type of Coal Wagon
« on: Sunday 02 August 20 19:52 BST (UK) »
Please suggest the type of coal wagons my GG Grandfather was in charge of??  It appears there was a jury verdict.  Where would I find more information?  Also his surname is transcribed incorrectly on Scotlands People, the actual record is correct but the transcriber used "l" instead of "i" on the website.  I only found the record on a wildcard search otherwise I may have missed it.  Should I report it?

 I read it as in charge of SOME waggons drawn by a horse

Trial records are at National Records of Scotland,

https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk

Interestingly the railway then gave 2 g's to their waggons, they did in my time!
