Gents,


I don't know where you got that idea from. None of these vans was vacuum fitted or piped.

113/7 = about 17 vehicles.


Agree, that was complete codswollop. That idea came from another dia van which did have a number piped/fitted I had been reading about but cant find the reference to hand.

So were look at about 17 vehicles which need to be moved on a Sunday fairly handy as butter would not have been allowed to sit around I suspect

The book does say the other known traffic flow was from Church Gresley to Chelmsford

The grey reference is located under Refrigerator vans at the start of the book, which like the butter vans were White before receiving grey livery at the same time. So was the grey lighter as it was painted over the original white?

The other thought is that after 1911 repainting, did they retain the "To be returned to Holyhead"?

No. They were then ordinary goods vans.

Drat! I was hoping no-one else would notice ... still, I haven't built the last one I bought yet, better give up plans to have the whole fleet. :lol:

I had noticed it was on ebay and likewise was keeping quiet about it, I suspect it may go a bit rich for my blood but you never know. I am currently working on the one i picked up at ExpoEm north to partner the one I bought finished via Peter (Stanton).

There does seem to be a good demand for these (and the other wagons produced) still but most of them are with Adrian at ABS awaiting refurbishment, but as he is due to retire in 3 years time so I am led to believe I doubt they will see the light of day again before then, unless he sells them on elsewhere
