The Turbot wagons were converted from BR bogie bolster E wagons between 1982 and 1988. Three drop-doors were added to each side of the wagon with fixed and substantially braced ends. 'Wings' were soon added to the ends, helping to reduce the length of the gap between two wagons when a train was being loaded with waste ballast from a ballast cleaner on a parallel track.
The Turbots proved quite versatile, being used for moving new ballast to storage locations, taking old ballast for disposal and for moving large boulders for use as coastal sea defense. The type was generally withdrawn in 2002, but many have joined the engineering fleets of heritage railways, light-rail systems and London Underground.
