In 1957 200 of this batch of 251/2 ton standard iron ore hoppers were built with vacuum brake and roller bearings. 135 were uprated to 33.5 tons and 13 to 30tons. Later some were in coal traffic in South Wales and others used by the engineers for ballast. NOTE – These photographs are low quality scans and may not print well. Do not order larger prints.
