LMSR Gangwayed Insulated Cream Vans

Carriage Conundrums – top page

Little is known about these two vans which were condemned in the early 1970’s. They could though confuse the casual observer as on one side they resembled a passenger carrying coach with five full size windows. On the other side there were no windows other than door droplights. Precisely which commodities were intended to be conveyed is not clear but the description suggests dairy products. In their later lives they were in use for general parcels carrying.
