About the Vintage Covered Wagon Colouring Pages
A wagon (also alternatively and archaically spelt waggon in British and Commonwealth English) is a heavy four-wheeled vehicle pulled by draught animals or on occasion by humans, used for transporting goods, commodities, agricultural materials, supplies and sometimes people.
Wagons are immediately distinguished from carts (which have two wheels) and from lighter four-wheeled vehicles primarily for carrying people, such as carriages. Wagons are usually pulled by animals such as horses, mules or oxen. They may be pulled by one animal or by several, often in pairs or teams. However, there are examples of human-propelled wagons, such as mining corfs.
A wagon was formerly called a wain and one who builds or repairs wagons is a wainwright. More specifically, a wain is a type of horse- or oxen-drawn, load-carrying vehicle, used for agricultural purposes rather than transporting people. A wagon or cart, usually four-wheeled; for example, a haywain, normally has four wheels, but the term has now acquired slightly poetical connotations, so is not always used with technical correctness. However, a two-wheeled “haywain” would be a hay cart, as opposed to a carriage. Wain is also an archaic term for a chariot. Wain can also be a verb, to carry or deliver, and has other meanings.
The wagon has four wheels made out of wood and steel. The wagon wheel had an average weight of upwards of 300 pounds. The wagon wheels had a steel outer edge of about 1 inch thick and a wooden inner edge of about two inches thick. There are up to 40 spokes in an average wagon wheel all made out of wood. There are two steel rings around the middle of the wheel to hold the spokes on the wheel.
A person who drives wagons is called a “wagoner”, a “teamster”, a “bullocky”, a “muleskinner”, or simply a “driver”.
