    Thanks Ian / Andy. I will add a note to existing 042003 entry as duplicate numbers play havoc with my lists! However I have the coal hopper as disposed at Coopers 4/89 which seems to much of a coincidence?!

    Hi, 042001-042014 were issued to 24.5t Coal hoppers for IU at Coalite, Bolsover. This was subsequently cancelled and the wagons allocated were scrapped in April1989. 042016-042123 were issued to similar 24.5t hoppers also for use at Bolsover in September 1989. However 042048 was also cancelled with the wagon again being scrapped in April 1989. Some of these wagons did not carry there IU numbers and all were scrapped by Sadlers of Rotherham between November 1993 and February 1994 after the rationalisation of internal rail transport at Coalite. Some of this information does contradict published data with reports of these wagons being scrapped at Booths of Rotherham and Coopers at Sheffield. I did photograph many of these wagons back in 1990 and from memory I believe some or all of these wagons were broken up on site. Again from memory I believe these wagons were already in use at Coalite before the IU numbers were issued, can somebody confirm this please. Furthermore the North Eastern Region had an earlier numbering range for Internal Users from which the 042003 at Scarborough came, hope this helps regards Steve

    When I visited Bolsover Coalite Works in March 1992 I recorded all of 042016-042123 series as present and I have a photograph of a the remains of a scrapped wagon on site as well.
