Dapol DA4F-012-015 Ventilated Van Carricks 182

Dapol DA4F-012-015 Ventilated Van Carricks 182.

Ventilated vans were the primary way of transporting perishable goods quickly and efficiently and yet maintaining their contents in peak condition. All four of the pre-nationalised rail companies had their own particular designs, but each shared the same basic principles of having a wooden body with ventilators, which allowed a constant flow of circulating fresh air around their cargo.

Ventilated vans from all four companies survived into nationalisation until BR eventually standardised its own version and these were in use until the 1960s at which time longer vans with wider door ways to allow pallet access were introduced. Many ventilated vans from all companies survive into preservation.

This is modelled on the GWR and LMS ventilated vans. The LMS version had a steel corrugated end and the GWR was traditionally planked. It feature profiled wheels, accurately applied livery and highly detailed body moulding.

It measures 82mm (length including buffers) by 33mm (width) by 48mm (height).
