I have a question for you all please,I have been told by a modeler that the hand rails and lamp irons would of been picked out in either black or white, I am not sure that early ones were, I can not find any early photos of pre grouping vans, so what are yours thoughts on this please.


Can't speak for the M&SWJR, but pre-Grouping in general, I'd say no, unless the standard livery is to have ironwork painted black. White handrails etc. for seeing in the dark came rather later, I think - possibly WWII?
