Era 8 (1983 to 1994) British Rail Sectorisation
The 1955 British Railways modernisation plan recognised the fact that the UK rail system required a new high capacity tanker wagon to cater for the growing demand
of petroleum products. Working with the Charles Roberts Railway Wagon Works and the Esso Petrol company a modern design capable of higher speeds was developed.
Subsequently a large number of users operated the same vehicles - with their use lasting into the 1990's on commercial traffic and longer in engineers use.
