Built for Cawoods, the first of 172 PF012A PFA wagons entered traffic in December 1986, conveying containers of domestic coal and smokeless fuel from collieries and Coalite plants throughout England and Wales to Merseyside ports for onward shipment to Ireland. During the mid-1990s, 60 wagons were sold to British Fuels Ltd, with their TOPS numbers receiving the 'BFL' prefix. While in service with British Fuels, loading points included Onllwyn Washery in south Wales, Rossington Colliery in South Yorkshire and Gascoigne Wood Colliery in North Yorkshire, together with the Coal Products Ltd 'Firegold' plant at Immingham Dock. These traffic flows continued for a time after British Fuels was acquired by Coal Products Ltd (CPL) in 1999, before the PFA fleet was re-deployed on flows from Gascoigne Wood to Aberdeen, Mossend and Inverness in Scotland, and from Immingham to Mossend.
While in CPL ownership, many of the 'coaltainers' retained the British Fuels red livery, although a portion of the fleet was repainted green and received the corporate branding of the new owners. Both types were mixed together in rakes.
