The British Oxygen Co. ran a fleet of 27 cryogenic tank wagons from Middlesborough and Widnes. Built in 1970 they ran until the late 1990s and could be found in small numbers at many industrial locations and wagon load yards where they could be unloaded directly into road delivery vehicles. The fleet could be used for either nitrogen or oxygen and were carried on either Gloucester cast or GPS bogies. An article with drawings is in Rail Express Modeller Supplement no. 7 November 2004.
