This expansion tells a part of the story of the more than 24,000 21T hoppers built by British Railways to several different diagrams over the 10 years from 1949. These wagons were a continuation of a former LNER design, with some of the earliest examples featuring the long brake lever and single-sided brakes of late LNER examples and also riveted bodywork.

The various diagrams featured 2 styles of side ribs, but all had 5 ribs per side.

This expansion features the earliest design of 21T coal hopper built by British Railways to dia. 1/141 which was in effect a direct copy of the existing LNER diagram down to the brake rigging and LNER style handbrake lever. The wagons are supplied in clean and weathered versions which are further enhanced by loaded and empty versions of each with suitably modified physics to match the load state.
