The SECR standard design of engineering ballast wagon used the Maunsell/Lynes standard underframe design with a 2-plank drop-side body, initially with raised rounded ends, though later built wagons had straight 2-plank ends from new. The first wagons were built in 1919 the construction of 120 wagons was completed by the Southern Railway, replacing the eclectic mix of run-down wagons in use by the engineers with the new purpose-designed wagon. Most at least of the fleet passed into British Railways ownership, withdrawals starting as new BR wagons were built, though the last wagon lasted until 1971.
