Wagons

Four-wheeled wagons were used to move heavy loads. They came in a range of sizes for different uses. 

All-purpose German wagons used by farmers carried produce such as pumpkins or grapes, or even pigs to market.

Town lorries had small wheels to turn tight corners in city streets.

Huge tabletop wool wagons were capable of carrying 15 tonnes. They were pulled by up to 16 horses or bullocks over dusty western tracks.

Wagons featured in the National Carriage Collection are an Army General Service Wagon, a Drover's Wagon, Farmer's Spring Wagon, German Wagon (1), German Wagon (2), Horse Caravan, Horse Wagon, Station Wagon, Thoroughbrace Wagon, Timber Wagon, and a Town Lorry.
