This page summarizes the GWR Shunters Truck diagrams, and provides a list of sample allocations. The table below is for GWR designs only, and does not include absorbed types. Sample allocations of GWR Shunters Trucks, with an emphasis on the post-grouping era, is given in this Microsoft Word file. Thanks to Steve Daly for providing the initial information for this listing.

For illustrations and details, refer to 'GWR Goods Wagons' by Atkins, Beard & Tourret. Note also that you can read about the use of Shunters Trucks on the very useful "Goods and Not So Goods" website.
