The thing to remember about coal drops is that they were almost always used by the North Eastern Railway and on the other hand they were quite rare elsewhere.

The example at Goathland, the remains of one at Shildon and also the resited installation at Beamish are all on NER territory. The NER used hopper wagons and wagons with side doors were not usually used on domestic coal deliveries. This situation continued right through to the 1960s in the NE Region. It appears that bulk lime could also be delivered in the same manner.
