  1. Also a Scottish word for a cart make with wood and 4 wheels plank of wood between and with a string or a wheel for guiding suitable for 2 riders!

    1. Totally agree, (my dad and a lot more in our area of Grangemouth) made numerous bogies usually with bits of wood, pram wheels and string to steer with great fun was had racing them or just playing on them. I thought that it was a Scottish term but seems it could have travelled up from the north east of England.
