2,599 wagons were built in 1946-7 to D2109. Door types varied and there is a choice of pressed or welded side and end doors in the kit.
20,000 more wagons similar to this type were built to the order of the Ministry of War Transport, later becoming BR D1/102. Most of these had small top doors above the usual side ones.
The 1970s re-bodied BR wagons were very similar, although the bottom edge of the side panels was slightly rounded on most wagons. None of these had top doors.
Can be modelled with the side door open in a goods yard (the welded door would be best, as the pressed door does not have the pressed detail on the back).
The immediate LMS predecessor to these, D2102 7 plank end door, may be introduced later.
