On this date, Spooner received notification back from the BoT, regarding an earlier letter about the carriage of quarrymen on trains. Their response, having consuklted Capt. Tyler, was that all passengers, labourers or others, should be carried in properly constructed passenger carriages. The result was the construction of some small very primitive carriages constructed of timber and being open - they were as cheap as possible to remain in the BoT requirements. Later, 1873 they were roofed, although they didn't receive doors until the latter part of the next decade[1]
