As domestic and industrial coal traffic dwindled during the 1980s increasing numbers of relatively new HEA coal hoppers were to be found sitting in marshalling yards without any traffic to carry.

Some 44 wagons were converted during 1995 by fitting a retractable flexible cover operated by a windlass at solebar level. The conversion of the hoppers was an attempt by the shadow privatisation company Loadhaul to make use of the valuable wagons that were sitting idle and to attract new bulk freight traffic that required protection from the elements to the railways.

This Train Simulator expansion features CEA covered hoppers converted from both body variations of HEA hopper in Loadhaul livery.
