The wagon started life as a War Department vehicle in 1944. Built by Charles Roberts & Co to an LNER design, although the LNER had stopped making timber under frames for their own wagons of this type in the early 1930's.
The Ammunition wagon includes a double bed, sofa bed, TV, en-suite shower room/WC, BBQ (charcoal not provided), fridge, kettle, sink, multiple power sockets & heating for those chilly winter months. Outside you will find an individual private garden with outdoor seating and a BBQ, offering a great place to relax over looking the steam railway and surrounding Rother Valley.
Don't feel like cooking? Within 1/2 a mile of the wagon you will find not 1 but 2 great places to eat, relax and enjoy the countryside.
