WCJS refrigerator vans

Post by jimwatt2mm » Wed Nov 25, 2015 7:17 pm

On one of the RMweb forums the subject of LNWR dia46 refrigerator vans came up, in the course of which mention was made of some of these being built for the WCJS. The WCJS book states that there were 50 of these and that their livery was an all-over grey. The following quote from LNWR liveries would seem to contradict this:

"The WCJS also owned a considerable fleet of meat and refrigerator vans which were painted similarly to their LNWR counterparts, namely grey for ordinary meat vans and white for refrigerators, the later having grey underframes and curb rails"

There has also been mention that WCJS build/number plates were blue. Can anyone shed any light on this/ Purely from interest - I'm not planning on building any!
