To meet the rapid rise in demand for bananas shipped in from the Caribbean, specially constructed steam heated banana vans were manufactured with plywood cladding and insulated bodies that allowed bananas to be shipped in green and ripened enroute. The Dapol model is of a later variant built typically in the 1950s, that was steam piped allowing the easier running of interconnected block trains. This type of banana van was often characterised by a large yellow spot on each side and had a 12t capacity. The Dapol model of the Banana Van features: Highly detailed moulded body Self-centring NEM pockets Profiled wheels Fine printed livery
