Rail threader wagon CFCF 1

Coded CFCF 1 with John Holland stickers on the side, this wagon is used on the end of rail trains in order to discharge long lengths of new rail from the flat wagons onto the ground. It was originally built as a TT van way back in 1890 numbered TT3, before eventually becoming QD1, then sleeper discharge wagon VZCA 1.
