The Quarrymen's carriages first appeared on the Ffestiniog Railway (FR) in 1867. Their primary use was in special trains that carried men to work in the quarries around Blaenau Ffestiniog. Three distinct types were produced over the years, developing from very simple unsprung open wagons to fully enclosed and glazed carriages by the end of the 19th century.
