Comments: The only user of PO bogie vans was Shellstar (later UKF, later Kemira), who employed a fleet of pallet vans for bagged fertiliser traffic. Most of the wagons were leased from Lloyds and Scottish or BRT, with 25 being owned outright. Documents suggest that LS7050 was actually owned by Procor (though built by W H Davis) so it may have carried a different prefix. The PWAs were recoded JWA in 1990 but were all withdrawn soon afterwards.
