I've been reading a book about the former wagon works at Heywood and it mentioned how some of their later work involved building new bodies on old wagon chassis. It got me thinking what was the most rebuilt wagon type or individual wagon in the last 30 years or so?

I believe that some MEA wagons were built on old chassis and then they later had the bodysides cut down and rebuilt, but I'm sure that there must be plenty of other examples.

Without adding too much to the thread, I would think the most productive area to research would be departmental wagons, and specialised versions at that.

I don't know if any still exist but there is always the snowplows built on old steam loco tender frames.
