The Great Western Railway converted several of its X9 Mica Insulated Meat Vans in 1938 into these TEVANs . They carried tea and coffee from Lyons depot at Greenford and continued to do so into the 1960s. This differs from my X9 MICA in that it does not have the dry ice boxes on the roof (as did the prototype). In GWR ownership they were painted white with red lettering.
Unlike the original Hornby Doubleo or Wrenn model this has the correct roof hatch and end details for the Standard RCH chassis. To build a complete wagon you will need:
1 x DAPOL 10ft wagon chassis (WCHASS10) or equivalent Wrenn/Hornby Doublo version;
1 x No.6 x 13mm self tapping screw (to hold the body to the chassis);
Wire (for handrails),
paint and transfers.
