FVF flexivan flat wagon

Basically an experimental wagon they were fitted with a turntable that allowed a truck to back up to it and sort of slide it container onto the turntable, the turntable was then turned parallel to the wagon for transport. Presumably their intended use was to allow containers to be loaded/unloaded at locations that did not have conventional container handling equipment. By the time the above photo was taken they had been stored for quite a while.
