Ex Parkwood Models, a twin pack of a sand wagon and a Coil J. BR built 100 sand wagons with 10-foot wheelbase wagons in 1957, they were withdrawn around 1980. 750 similar wagons with 9-foot wheelbase were built 1950-1. The Coil J wagons were built in 1960 on redundant iron ore tippler chassis for carrying coiled strip steel, they were the last unfitted wagons used on BR, lasting until the mid-80s.

The decals sheet contains enough markings for 3 of each wagon in any of the main liveries. For the Sand Tippler both fitted and unfitted, and some later TOPS and departmental markings. For the Coil J the original COIL-J branding, the KJO tops code from 1972, and the later SJO code introduced in 1983.
