For ten years British Railways continued to build Coke hopper wagons to a design used by the LMS and many private companies. When wet, coke is corrosive and the wagons had relatively short lives. The last were condemned in South Wales in 1981. Photographs and drawings were published in the Model Railway Constructor August 1983 pages 478 - 482.
