Comments: The PGA code was applied to all 2-axle, un-covered hopper wagons, and it therefore covered a variety of designs. The majority were for aggregates traffic, and many of these have since been replaced by new bogie hoppers and opens. Four recodings have affected the PGAs. Firstly, some PAA covered hoppers had their roofs removed and became PGAs while some PGAs were fitted with covers and recoded PAA. Secondly, the 1990 TOPS code reshuffle saw the Redland Self-Discharge Train PGAs altered to PHAs. From 1993 many PGAs were sold to BR and recoded ZFA (later HGA). Finally the PGA-D wagons acquired by EWS in 2003 were recoded as HGA. Codes PGB and PGO were apparently issued but details are unknown.
