By the Second World War the original 40T ‘Parrot’ wagons were requisitioned by the War Department and the design was modified featuring a fabricated side profile, disk wheels, vacuum braking and harder springing. This produced wagons capable of carrying 45 tons (single bottom plate) and 50 tons (double bottom plate).
