David, they are all in the book GWR Goods Wagons by Atkins, Beard & Tourret.  I have a copy.  Any particular thing you are looking for?

Been a Pro Modeller most of my working days and at 70 decided to build a small GWR Branch but having left the UK 33 years ago and never having Modelled the GWR before, I found the naming of wagon types a little confusing. I just checked the book out a little pricy for my pocket .

Hi David,

http://www.greatwestern.org.uk/stockcode.htm

They were to my knowledge telegraph codes, so often bear no relationship to their function.
The GWR site is a great source of information (and often modeling inspiration).
