The oil companies formed a significant proportion of the Private Owners of railway wagons, particularly following Nationalisation when so much freight was forsaking rail for road transport. But who were these companies, where were they located and when did they operate? What were their products and where were they sent?

This book attempts to answer these questions as well as describing the planning, design and operating of oil depots and the construction and evolution of tank wagons.
