Manufacturer description

Introducing GWR 105873 ‘Mica B’ Refrigerated Meat Van

This historic refrigerated meat van was a true game-changer in the early 1900s, with a cutting-edge carbonic acid machine that kept perishable goods fresh and delicious during long hauls.

These ventilated vans were mainly used to transport chilled beef carcasses from ports such as Birkenhead to Smithfield and other markets.

Picture this: the sleek and sturdy exterior of the van, crafted with precision and painted in the classic GWR livery, rolling down the tracks like a beast on a mission.

Inside, the intricate details of the refrigeration system – with its carbon dioxide gas – and trap doors on top of the roof for loading the dry ice –come to life in your mind’s eye.

Now, imagine owning a model of this iconic GWR Mica B Van – a stunning replica of the real thing, with all the intricate details and unique features of the original.

The exterior is a sight to behold, painted in classic GWR colors, and the interior is so detailed that you can almost see the carbonic acid machine at work.

If you’re a true collector, you don’t want to miss out on this rare and historic GWR Mica B Van model.
