Triang. Back in the days of solid handrails sticking out from the
boiler. Extremely crude by modern standards (groan).
I don't think I ever saw these on a freight train, just passenger.
Their boilers were based on the Great Western's number 4 boiler, as
fitted to City of Truro 50 years earlier.
There are two photos at http://www.semg.org.uk/steam/std3t_02.html claiming
to show 82019 and 82029 on goods workings, but in both cases the photo only
shows the first vehicle of the train, which is a covered van, so they might
be parcels rather than true freight trains.
RCTS BR Standard Locos Vol 3 shows:
82027 approaching Scarborough on pick up goods.
82019 on empty milk tanks at Vauxhall.
82015 on Fawley branch goods at Southampton.
82015 and 82016 on Esso tanks at Southampton.
82015 and 82012 on Fawley goods.
