Built for the transport of ironstone/iron ore, these wagons were used between ports or quarries and steel works in various parts of England and Wales. They were the BR standard design of iron ore hopper, rather different from all the other contemporary designs which had pre-World War II origins. Wagons to diagram 1/163 (B438000-439499) were built in two lots between 1955 and 1957. They wagons were all built unfitted, with lifting link brake gear, oil axleboxes and self-contained buffers.
