More than 800 of these general purpose two-axle vans were built by BR between 1959 and 1961. With folding end doors, they continued the long tradition of the Covered Carriage Truck (CCT), a type dating back to the 19th century for the movement of road carriages and cars.
However, as motor cars grew larger, they were banned from these duties in the mid-1960s, after which newspapers, mail and parcels traffic formed the bulk of their work. Many passed into departmental use from the 1970s onwards, proving useful as storage and tool vans.
