(For a number of years this vehicle carried the classification NWT but retained its number in the NQ numbering sequence).
OPEN MEDIUM TRUCKS. 218 of these goods vehicles were built between 1898 and 1914 numbered 1-218. Originally, these wagons carried the code letter R as they were built with sides and ends. Some later had the R removed if they regularly ran as flat wagons without the sides and ends. Over the years, a number of NQRs were provided with removable wood and steel frameworks with canvas roof canopies and side curtains, and internal seating to supplement the rest of the passenger stock during busy holiday periods.
COVERED TRUCK. Built in 1910 as 1NPH, this combined powder and goods wagon was the only one of its type built. It was reclassed NH later the same year when the explosives or powder compartment was converted to carry general goods.
CATTLE TRUCK. Four of these were built during 1899-1901 and eleven more were built during 1909 and 1917, a total of 15. They were numbered 1-15.
LOUVRED TRUCK. Seven louvre vans for carrying general goods were built during 1899-1901, with another one in 1906 and a further six in 1911, a total of 14 louvre vans numbered 1-14.
The term Louvred Truck describes the sides which consist of fixed louvres for ventilation. The aim was to keep the goods inside cool.
