During the later 1980s BR returned to carrying a lot of felled timber, converting wagons at various times from OBA, OCA & VDA, retaining their original numbers. Some of these conversions were reconverted, with changes in stanchion numbers, type etc. Liveries also altered. As well as Forestry commission timber (usually conifer) for paper pulp there was a considerable short term traffic in hardwoods, felled in southern England after the hurricane of 15 October 1987, sent to Caperboard near Hexham.

The chipboard plant at Hexham is Egger; Caberboard are somewhere near Inverness, I believe.
