Vans that were coded F were used for horse transport and were built as required from 1858 to 1914. This unique wagon, F 11, was built new on the 27th April 1893 at the Newport Workshops and was the only one built to this design. With four fixed wheels an 3 stalls it was like othe small horses boxes but with the addition of 8 vents/ windows on the roof like some of the larger 6 wheeled horse boxes. The length on this wagon was also different having being one foot shorter then small 3 stall verisons.
In August of 1911 the F11 was rebuilt into a larger 6 wheeled six stalled horse box and renumbered F24. This wagon then came off register on the 29th August 1940.
