These wagons are suited to the haulage of bulk loads over significant distances. British Rail developed new wagons in the 1970’s, focusing on the efficient haulage of bulk loads. They went about combining new frame designs with quick acting air brakes and lighter built material to reduce the overall weight of these wagons. Hence the longer 4-wheel and 100-ton bogie wagons which can travel safely at higher train speeds, reducing transit time.
An increase in wagon leasing by customers and traffic from Europe has also seen the reappearance of bright advertising liveries on many types of wagons.
