What kind of wagon (1930s) would have been used to ship finished chocolates from a factory. I assume a refrigerated wagon of some kind but maybe a ventilated wagon? I am particularly interested in the GWR but would welcome information on any of the other railways.

Interesting question CE.  I googled and came up with a potted summary of GWR wagons:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Western_Railway_wagons

Narrowing it down, meat was shipped in refrigerated vans:

Other perishables, such as fruit and even fish were shipped in ventilated vans.

Looking forward to other inputs.

Thanks for the reply. I too will be interested in other replies. I see we are both on this side of the Atlantic. If I modelling North America, at least here in the South of Ontario, I would have voted for the refrigerated wagon as it gets so hot here but I believe the UK is a lot more temperate so your answer makes sense.
