British Railways (Western Region)
This van is no longer on the Bluebell
The Western Region continued the Great Western tradition of giving their vehicles interesting telegraphic codes. The "Monster" was a GWR design of CCT. Their end-loading doors allowed cars (or carriages) to be loaded, but they were found to be generally very useful for a wide variety of cargoes. They were rated to run in passenger trains, and such vans often found their way onto the Southern Region on parcels trains.
