Dinorwic Quarry
2 1/2in white tare weights for slate wagons

  • We make the transfer in:
    1. 4mm = 1 ft scale
    2. 5.5mm = 1ft scale
    3. 7mm = 1ft scale
    4. 16mm = 1ft scale
    5. plus others when requested

  • The photographs we have inspected show tares of between 6-3-0 and 8-0-0

  • Most wagons had a tare of 7-3-0 or 7-2-0

  • We have assumed that the numbers represent hundredweight - quarters - pounds, as such weights are to be expected of a wagon this size.

  • One photograph shows a wagon with a tare of 9-0-0. This has filled-in sides, which would explain the extra weight

  • The numbers are fairly untidy, so we have assumed that they were hand-painted, or very badly weathered.

  • Some of the 'closed' numbers, eg 9 and 0 appear to be stencilled

  • Some tares display a single line (-) between the numbers, whereas others have a double line (=)

  • In order to preserve the random appearance of the tares, we have drawn variations of all the numbers
