What is a rully?

Hoping someone can help me, I have found a newspaper report date 1857 about the death of one of my ggg uncles (George Winn) in Hull, yorkshire, england. The report says that he was crushed to death at a railway goods yard between a rully which was laden with 3 tons of manganese, and the platform. Unfortunately despite their being a surgeon attending him almost immediately he died about 15 minutes after the accident. He was 10 years old.

My question is, what is a rully?

Thank you,
