History: RF308 was converted from a wagon previously based on the Isle of Man Railway, brought over in connection with the IRIS Sewerage scheme. It arrived on the M.E.R between April and July 2012, and was in use in connection with sewage works alterations at The Garey. After a period of storage at Laxey Car Shed, the vehicle was moved to Derby Castle Car Shed for rebuilding as a tippler wagon, in connection with further permanent way activities, returning to traffic for the 2014 Winter Relays. After further use on the Manx Electric, the wagon was moved to the steam railway during February 2016.
