They were built by the Standard Railway Wagon Co at Heywood and one of guys who worked there has written an excellent book which shows all of the wagons that they built. It only has one picture of the Tip Air, but it is a rare one of it actually in the tipping position, but there aren't any detailed drawings. The book is Standard Railway Wagon Co Heywood Works by David W Tandy.

Thank you both for your replies. Is the scrap wagon the blackadder?

 

Yes, the Heywood Works also did the conversion for the POA's RLS 5214-5233 in 1987 & RLS 4560-4579 in 1989.
