A batch of 39 wagons built by BREL Shildon and immediately transferred to BCG ownership. They were largely based on the concepts of the BR MGR coal hoppers, and like them had automatic unloading. Mainly used between Mountfield and Northfleet cement works, in the early 1980s some where working between Newbiggin and Dunbar cement works. They were scrapped in 1993.
