P & W MacLellan built this bogie hopper wagon for the Bengal Nagpur Railway around 1915. The firm's product catalogue describes the wagons as having underframes and hoppers built entirely of steel, with a double centre discharge, and fitted with hand and vacuum brakes acting on two wheels of each bogie. They were built for a 5 feet 6 inches guage (the standard gauge adopted on British railways is 4 feet 8.5 inches).
