300 of these wagons were built between 1952 and 1954. They were originally fitted with steam heating, but this was later removed. Used mainly by the companies Geest and Fyffes, these vans could be part of a mixed train or a 'block load' on their way from the shipping dock. Transfers are included; glue and paints are required to complete this model.

Parkside Dundas was formed in 1986, when the two partners Richard Hollingworth and Andrew Hastie combined their businesses. Richard made plastic injection mouldings, mostly for the electronics industry, but had also started on his Parkside 4mm scale 00 gauge wagon kits. Andrew ran Dundas Models, which concentrated on 009 narrow gauge models and which had introduced the pioneering Dundas range of kits.
In the last two decades, Parkside Dundas has continued to steadily expand on its foundation 00 and 009 ranges, adding a small N gauge range as well as an ever-growing commitment to 7mm scale O gauge.
In 2017, the Parkside range of standard gauge kits was sold to PECO and is now produced at the Ratio and Wills factory at Buckfastleigh.
