Despite their name, they were also used for vegetable traffic and could be used for general merchandise traffic. Hence why Bisto and Dunlop to name but two transported their goods this way. Vans have been used on the railways since the late 1800’s primarily to transport live stock. With its decline due to abattoirs in the early 20th century, GWR converted these cattle wagons to transport alternative goods.
