Webster's Dictionary [1] lists many different types of carriages among its entries. Strangely, it seems to me, most of these are accompanied with illustrations. These always catch my eye as I look up words, so I've gradually become aware of the great diversity in the construction of these vehicles. For no reason other than to scratch an itch, I've collected a list of different types of carriages and wagons here. Unless otherwise noted, I believe I found them in Webster's.
