The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 62

Insulated Vans

Insulated Vans

The Committee suggested, in connection with insulated railway vans for carrying dairy produce on certain days of the week, that this is a want felt very much for the reason that butter being sent to market or for shipment, suffers considerably if sent in the same vans as fish or skins or other objectionable cargo. We have reason for believing that the Commissioners have given this matter their attention, and that special trucks are to be set apart for carrying page 26 dairy produce. This has already received attention on some of the lines.

Mr Sinclair said that the Conference would be in accord on these remarks of the Committee, and he moved that the suggestions therein should be laid before the Railway Commissioners.

Mr Gough seconded the motion, which was agreed to unanimously.
