History information:

A total of 203 Meat Wagons were built between 1881 and 1896 to D379. While they were nominally to the same design, several differences are apparent from photographs.

The first batch, built in 1881, were turned out in lined passenger livery and numbered 61-72. All, however, were scrapped by 1905.

The remaining 190 vehicles were built for goods traffic, painted in goods livery and numbered in the goods wagon list. Known numbers were 35468, 5817, 35463.

Withdrawal of the goods vans began around 1910, however, between 100 and 150 survived into the LMS period. The exact date of withdrawal of these vehicles is uncertain. They had been replaced as meat vans by 1925, but it is not possible that some may have survived beyond this date in departmental use. It is not known if any received LMS livery.

All instructions and various other literature are all included in the box. For further information see “An Illustrated History of Midland Wagons Volume 1” by R.J. Essery.
