Bulk milk transportation started in 1931 with the introduction of the 4-wheeled milk tanker. These wagons were built by the SR for United Dairies, but these vehicles rode very poorly and had to be speed restricted. To overcome these deficiencies the 6 wheel milk tanker was developed for United Dairies and Express Dairy. These wagons proved very successful and over 630 6-wheeled milk tankers were built between 1932 and 1948 and used nationally. Eventually, most of the bulk milk transportation was moved over to road tankers and by the 1980s these rail vehicles had become redundant. Several examples of these milk tankers survive into preservation. The Dapol O gauge model of the 6 wheel milk tanker features: Extremely detailed and accurate body shell and chassis Many separately added ne details Sprung metal buffers Metal sprung coupling hook and metal screw coupling Finely pro led wheels and axles with brass bearing pockets Chassis is partially compensated for smooth trouble free running
