These are ex-MoD flat wagons regauged by the WHR (P) and purchased by the L&B in1995. Three flat wagons were first used by the L&B at the Lynbarn Railway to store parts of steam loco Axe. No.50 was transferred to Woody Bay to assist with the early track laying in 2002. No. 52 followed soon after with the frames of No.51 being converted at Bratton Works to become the ballast hopper.

The rotting and damaged planks of both wagons were replaced with newer planks during 2003-4. Both wagons are currently in service assisting in the transport of track and building materials.
