One of the first "modern" type of P.W. open wagons built, although on 30 - year old underframes from Bolster Es with new bodies added during 1982-3. There were about 900 Turbots built. In use they became very battered due to being struck by excavator buckets. If used for sand, they needed lining with polythene sheeting, as the doors were not exactly leakproof. The Turbot was apparently bad luck for the works rebuilding them as construction began at Shildon, which closed before all the wagons had been converted. The work then transferred to Swindon, which also closed; the rest were then done at BREL(RFS) Doncaster.
