The first TOPS number series of 45ton GLW Shell SUKO 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 BP 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.
