HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.

The 10-ton ventilated meat van operated by British Railways is a direct development of the vans used by the former L.M.S. Railway.

A batch of the British Railways vehicles was built at the Wolverton workshops in 1952.

The van makes maximum use of standard components, and its under frame is in fact identical with that used on the 12-ton ventilated goods van.

The body differs externally only in the additional ventilators used on the meat van.

The maroon colour scheme shows that the vehicle is used for fresh meat and the “XP” code denotes that the van is suitable for running in passenger trains.
