Long Description:
På Museet ses en godsvogn af samme type, som man brugt til at fragte brunkul i. Vognen blev bygget på Scandia togfabrik i Randers i 1966. Den blev udrangeret i 1994 og flyttet til Roskilde Jernbanemuseum, inden den i 2018 blev solgt til Brunkulsmuseet.

Det er en godsvogn af typen DSB E 233. Vognen vejer 10,7 tons. Den kan rumme 30 tons gods, men da brunkul fylder meget, kunne den kun rumme 20 tons, der blev læsset ved håndkraft. 1 mand kunne i løbet af 10 timer læsse 60 tons brunkul svarende til 3 fyldte vogne!
