Wagonette in use

A wagonette (little wagon) is a small horsecar with springs, which has two benches along the right and left side of the platform, people facing each other.[1] The driver sits on a separate, front-facing bench. A wagonette may be open or have a tilt. A large horse-drawn enclosed vehicle with spring-suspension, a similar arrangement of the seats and obligatory ceiling is called an omnibus.

The 1914 book Motor Body-building in All Its Branches by Christopher William Terry, defined a shooting-brake as a wagonette provided with game and gun racks and accommodation for ammunition.[2]
