A mineral wagon is a small railway vehicle used to carry coal, ores and other mine products . In the United Kingdom they usually have four wheels. They were originally made of wood and were often of very simple construction, with no train brakes, but from the 1930s onwards were more commonly made of riveted or welded steel.
