QCF Class flat wagon.

This class was built around the standard 42'-0" post-war underframe. It initially came into being as the result of rebuilding surplus TA class cattle trucks into flat tops for container traffic. The class was then multiplied before conversion to other groups. The most common conversion involved the fitting of extension brackets at each end and reclassification to QCE. Building and disposal of the class is summarised as follows:
