The 8 plank wagon was a development of the earlier 7 plank version and was primarily a coal wagon, carrying the less dense forms of coal (coke etc), where the extra height allowed it to carry its full 12 ton capacity. They were built in the late 1920s to the late 1930s and continued into service up to the late 1960s.
To aid unloading and loading they had a door at each side and could be tipped from the one opening end door.
These model 8 plank wagons are highly detailed and will be a great addition to your rolling stock.
