HAA Wagon 359473 Moira West Junction 23 October 1989

The HAA coal hopper was one of the most successful wagon types of the 1960s, completely revolutionising the movement of coal between collieries and power stations, using what became known as the 'merry-go-round' principle. Over 11,000 of these wagons were built between 1964 and 1982. 359473 is pictured at Moira West Junction on 23 October 1989.
