Album Info:Rolling stock with road numbers starting with 30 to 39, all tank wagons. Since the two sides of all wagon types are different, I treated the side on which the vacuum pipes are mounted, or where this was not practical, the side on which the brake wheel is mounted to the left of centre, as Side B. Further, since they describe brake systems and not wagon types, I left out the letters D, L, R, V and J in the wagon letter codes. Where applicable, the various complete letter codes and new class numbers for each wagon are included in brackets in the descriptions. The meaning of these omitted letters follow below.

D in position 2, 3 or 4: Dual Power Vacuum Brakes.

L in position 2, 3 or 4: Air Brakes.

R in position 2, 3 or 4: Dual Power Air Brakes.

V in position 3 or 4: Vacuum Brakes.

J in position 2, 3 or 4: Vacuum Brakes with Rejection Lugs on Brake Shoes.
