The first TOPS number series of 45ton GLW BP tank wagons, as with others they are ex SMBP. A mixture of original wagon series, with different builders and some rebuilt with Bruninghaus suspension. [The next wagons in the TOPS series are 61000, there are also SUKO wagons in the 60000 series. The SMBP60xxx series was intended for Epikote lined tanks, but this may not have carried through to the SUKO/BP split.
