Slaters Plasticard O SR 4 Wheel PLV/GUV 7C020
The design of these vans originates with the South Eastern & Chatham Railway shortly before WW1 as passenger luggage vans. The type was adopted by the SR as a standard design after grouping, with the same basic body design being adapted with end doors as general utility vans (GUV). Later builds featured '2+2' planking using alternate pairs of broad and narrow planks, with construction continuing into the  early British Railways period. Widely known as 'Southern CCTs' (covered carriage trucks, even though most didn't have the end door features of the carriage truck) a significant number of these vans were still in use in 1980. Though most had been taken out of traffic by 1985 many survive today as useful tool and storage vans on heritage railways.
This kit builds the early even-planked design, the SECR vans lacking the side ventilators as shown, which are easily be added to model the SR built vans. The 2+2 planking can also be recreated by scribing the extra joints, refer to photos to pick the right planks to 'split'.
A kit for the BY van with guards' office is also available, Slaters 7C022. The BYs were the first vans built with the '2+2' planking style.

Slaters Plastikard O Gauge 7C019 MR/LMS Slat-Sided Milk Van Kit

For many years the railways conveyed fresh milk in churns. The milk needed to be kept cool, so early milk vans were built with slated sides, allowing a steady air-flow around the churns while the train was moving. These vans often had long service lives, being used for other traffic when more modern milk transport choices became available.
Later loads included beer and seasonal produce such as fruit, vegetables and crated fish. Some vans may have had the slats sheeted over inside for general parcels service.
