RBW Class Steel bodied bulk wheat wagons

 In 1930 a new design of all steel bogie open wagon appeared (class RB). Construction continued until 1937 by which time a total of 177 had been built, however, during this period, forty of the first batch of these wagons were fitted with wooden side extensions and a ridge pole and reclassified RBW for bulk wheat traffic. These conversions occurred as follows:

1931

11185, 11192, 11208, 11213/6-9, 11228/9, 11243, 11263/9, 11275-7, 11291/6/9

1932

11186/9, 11190/3/5/8, 11211/2, 11221/4/6/7, 11231, 11250/5/7, 11260/2, 11270, 11282
