Introduced in 1938, these wagons (diagram 1/120) when the LNER altered its design of vacuum fitted open wagons to conform more closely to the practise adopted by the other companies.  It continued as a standard design until 1945, when it was given a steel body.  They were used for general traffic until the early 1970s. Being equipped with the vacuum brake, they were suitable for express goods services.

These vehicles were common until the late 1960s, although some lasted longer on service department use.
