The SR four wheel milk "vans" were constructed in 11/31 and withdrawn in 1936, because of their rough riding at speed.


The six wheel "vans" were introduced in 05/34 and survived until 1980.


I've used the description of van because, whether they had a fixed tank or carried a mobile tanker, they were regarded as coaching stock, so you will find their history in Mike King's book An Illustrated History of Southern Coaches.
