Introduced in 1942 for the transport of Sherman tanks, the 50T bogie Warwell wagon continued to see service after the end of the Second World War.
After the initial urgency of transporting Sherman tanks, the wagons were loaned to the railway companies - often still in their military paint work. Eventually the railway companies (especially BR bought the Warwells for their own use).

Here we have an early example of it's usefulness, moving a Steam Roller which would otherwise be too large for the Loading Gauge.
