According to the Railway Series volume, Oliver the Western Engine, ballast trucks were considered to be the worst of all for a long time. This was until Donald and Douglas managed to transform goods traffic on both the Main Line and the Little Western. In addition they stopped their teasing towards Oliver when he pulled S.C. Ruffey, their leader, apart.
Ballast trucks are based on 7 and 8-plank open wagons. They were later replaced by Mineral wagons.
The 7-8 Plank Ballast trucks are painted in pink, blue, brown, grey and orange while the Mineral Wagons are painted orange, light grey and brown.

The Host Wagons are a type of truck designed to carry narrow gauge trucks over larger gauge track. When it is carrying a guard's van, it can be used as the first or last wagon in the train.
A real life example from the Padarn Railway, a slate carrying line, can be found at the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum at the Talyllyn Railway.
