BR Parcels and Passenger-Rated Stock Volume 1: Full Brakes, Parcels and Miscellaneous Vans & Car- Carrying Vehicles
All parcels trains required a vehicle in which the guard travelled, and there was usually space for a parcels-related load as well. This volume looks at the various designs operated during the BR period, and to these are added the vans without guardâ€™s accommodation, known as parcels and miscellaneous vans, and the covered carriage trucks. These latter vehicles had end doors to allow vehicles to be loaded, but could also be used as normal parcels vans.
Volume 2 covers livestock vehicles, such as the horse boxes and special cattle vans, and perishable-traffic vehicles for fish, fruit and milk. Volume 3 covers self-propelled parcels vans, TPOs and car-carrying vehicles for Motorail services.
