Details

Introduced in the mid-1960s, TTA tank wagons were designed to carry petroleum products. Our model represents No.5958 which was built by R. Y. Pickering in 1965 for BRT (British Railway Traffic and Electric Company), who leased the wagon to VIP Petroleum Ltd. VIP was an independent company, competing with the major corporations selling petrol and diesel at UK roadside forecourts, before being taken over by Elf Oil (GB) Ltd in 1976. Under the TOPs system our wagon would become No. 57278, seeing service into the 1980s before withdrawal.
