Fish No.4 & Fish No.5

The final two fish wagons were constructed in house by the Railway Company in Douglas Works and once again utilised the underframes from four-wheel carriages as they became paired” as detailed below; they were both scrapped at some point between 1960 and 1965.  Lettering was marked in 8” high letters on the left side, un-shadowed with fleet numbers on the right.

The last remaining member of the series (No.1) was the first to be built, seen here in the goods yard at Douglas Station in the summer of 1969 some five years before it was scrapped, the lettering having long since succumbed to the rigours of outdoor storage.
