Scorpion Wagons
Scorpion produced 4 types of goods wagons.
Initially they produced 3 wagons from aluminium castings from some time after 1948.
These wagons were all four wheel wagons and they were a side tipping wagon, a timber wagon and an open wagon.

Around 1952 when the 6363 loco was released the above wagons were discontinued and replaced with a pressed steel, four wheel open wagon.

Here is an example of the pressed steel wagon.
