Not sure if these provide the answer, but you could try the GWR.org website, books by Tourett Atkins et al. If you are on Facebook, then there are EM modellers sites, clearing house (which covers wagons) and GW modeller sites.
A long time after the last post – but ‘All About GWR Iron Minks’, Lewis, Lloyd, Metcalf, Miller, HMRS, has multitudinous detail including ‘condemned’ dates. It’s from 1980, so presumably available secondhand or via a library if you can’t find one to borrow from local modelling friends. Not many iron minks survived into BR but there is a photo in the book of one in departmental service in BR livery. Probably most survivors spent their short time after 1948 in the last GW livery.
