This Express Wagon is a low four-wheeled wagon with an open rectangular body, like that of a box.
A very versatile carriage, it is suitable for seated passengers travelling, or when seats are removed, very adequate for carrying any of the needs and stores of the early settler families.
It was often harnessed with a single horse or with a pole and two horses abreast.
This Express Wagon was built by Horne and Company of Woodville. It has been restored to its present condition by long-time Museum supporter John Salmon.
It was bought from Mr Salmon by the Manawatu Historic Vehicle Collection in 2018, with generous donations from friends of the Museum.
