BR built just two batches of Bogie bolster Es in 1961-2 a total of 1200 wagons. So, all were relatively modern on David and LLoyd cast bogies. At just 32ft. over headstocks they were very short - shorter than a tube wagon, but the 4 axles meant they had a higher payload. Very popular with engineers many found other uses. [Many others were used for coil which feature in another collection]. Drawings and information can be found in Silsbury, Roger & Mann, Trevor., (1983a) The 30 ton Bogie Bolster E. Model Railway Constructor vol. 50 (part 587) pp 165 - 169. and in Bartlett et al 1985. From 1982 many hundreds were rebuilt as Turbots for the engineers
