Product Description

Our next Limited Edition a Southern Region 4 wheeled cycle van. In 1951 14 standard Passenger Luggage Van’s were converted primarily for the conveyance of cycles between London and the Channel Ports. They were used on trains to Dover Folkstone and Newhaven.They were fitted internally with between 24 and 60 hooks to carry bicycles and could be readily distinguished from standard vans by a white stencilled bicycle symbol.

Apart from use on the Channel Docks trains they were also used to convey new bicycles from Kent to London.They had one other use which took them away from the Southern Region as the Cyclist Tourist Club used to run special trains from the London area to other parts of the country. A typical train would consist of three or four coaches and cycle vans. British Transport Films made a programme about these excursions in the mid 1950’s.

The cycle vans remained in service until the late 1960’s following which they were used on parcels work alongside the standard vans. The TMC example will be S1282S nished in pristine crimson livery or weathered by TMC.

  1. Simply Brilliant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2018

    Ordered this SR Cycle Van with the weathered finish applied as pictured above and it is simply perfect. As a modeller who doesn't like heavy weathering on items but also for a model to not look like it's straight from the factory, the light weathering application is perfect. Just enough application to show that the vehicle has had a used life put not loads to lose out on detail and the colours of the vehicle. Pricing is fantastic and worth every penny to spend on the model and weathering. This is my first time purchasing from TMC, would definitely buy again and will definitely be purchasing items from TMC in the future!
