Rectangular tar tank wagons were first introduced around 1885 and they remained in production until as late as 1946, although most production ceased during the late 1920s as cylindrical tanks became more popular. They were used primarily for the transportation of tar, pitch and heavy oils and, as such were an important part of the railway goods scene, and a reasonably common sight across the entire country, especially during the pre-war years.
