Where did LGW grain hoppers operate

Post by Kelvin White »

The Leith General Warehousing wooden grain hoppers were top loaded, bottom discharge.

I’ve seen reports that they worked in block trains from Leith to Edinburgh.
Did they work individually to various distilleries? I don’t think so - clarification required.

These distilleries would of needed some form of catch pit and conveyor system.
I haven’t come across a photograph of an individual LGW wagon in a train or at a distillery.

Any clarification would be most welcome

Thanks Kelvin
