In an effort to retain traffic in bricks BR introduced experimental wagons for pallets of bricks which were followed by 1423 palbricks, of 3 different dimension to cope with different pallet sizes. The collection has a few original wagons and others after rebuilding as match wagons for freightliner wagons which lacked conventional buffing and drawgear and others in internal use including at Rail Ring Roll products, Manchester. History, number series, scale drawing and other photographs were published in Bartlett, P., Larkin, D., Mann, T., Silsbury, R., and Ward, A. (1985) An illustrated history of BR wagons, Volume 1 published by Oxford Publishing Company, 192 pages. see information on preservation at http://www.palbrick.com/
