Scottish Oil Agency Tanker

Scottish Oil Agency 12 ton Class "A" tanker wagon.

The Scottish Shale Oil Industry Collection is recognised as a collection of national importance to Scotland. Assembled since 1983, it contains a diverse range of objects representing every aspect of the shale oil industry, and ranging in size for a postage stamp to a railway wagon. We continue to extend the size and scope of the collection and are always very pleased to learn of further objects that might be acquired.
