1001 - hopper waggon
This is a 4 wheel 20 ton hopper waggon. (NER, I think)

These are big - the person standing alongside is about 5' 6" tall.
There is a similar vehicle, recently restored, at the NRM, Shildon. On a visit in early 2011 to Locomotion, it was parked by Platform 7, the cafe - it has since been moved.

I prefer this unrestored look. I appreciate that stock stored outside needs weather-proofing, but the effects of a hard working life should be remembered as well.
