That's an interesting looking vehicle, though not anything I'd use.
I wish you well on this project, hope you get enough on board.  :thumbsup:

I'm afraid my catalogue tool can't do one of those arty graphical target
or counter bars 8)

Does it matter which one we pre-order as there are 2 to choose from?

Sorry the idea was to use that to indicate if you were interested in decals.

They were used in milk trains from the 1920s until the mid 1950s. They ran with trains of siphons originally but from the late 1920s onwards, an increasing proportion of milk tankers were included in milk trains. I think one was branded for a specific route (Frome IIRC) but some were simply branded for milk trains too and from London. This means they could reasonably be seen on any part of the GWR network.
