Lackenby Steelworks at Redcar in Teeside opened in 1956 and produced many steel products including plate, rod and coil. The traffic flows from the countries many steel works were to large engineering firms, shipyards and other heavy manufacturing plants. Lackenby steelworks  had a dedicated fleet of plate wagons of which E212085 was one. They could be distinguished from other plate wagons as they carried the branding RETURN EMPTY TO LACKENBY WORKS. A train of plate wagons carrying this branding was not an uncommon site.  E212085 was built by Cravens in 1937 with rivetted sides and ends, plate front axleboxes and RCH W irons.
