PalVan

palletvanv2

Running Number (MoD) WGB4110
Present Location SOLD


These palletvans were special conversions of conventional box vans for the MoD to ease loading with a forklift. Double doors at opposite corners make them much more accessible but in service, uneven weight distribution from loading was blamed for derailments and the fleet condemned to internal use at MoD depots.

Andrew obtained this one as a stores van from the Rutland Railway Museum.

The PalVan was sold & moved out of the AFRPS site at Tata steel works, Scunthorpe in April 2013. The Weekend Rails blog entry "Of departing vans and hydraulic fans" describes the departure.
