Khaki green body, white lettering.   
Suitable: Military Railways, maybe others

Variation on Authentic; original was open wagon  

For sixty years the British Army operated a railway dedicated to training soldiers to operate a complete strategic rail supply system. Located on somewhat boggy heathland between Bordon and Liss, on the Hampshire-Sussex border, the facility was initially called the Woolmer Instructional Military Railway (W.I.M.R.). It developed, both in its purpose and its geography, becoming the Longmoor Military Railway (L.M.R) in 1935. It played an a pivotal role in training soldiers and officers to understand the complex and inter-related aspects of railway construction, engineering, repair, operations, traffic, and management, all from a military viewpoint.

He soon had premises at 136 (later re-numbered as 358) Wimborne Road, Winton. His eldest son, Herbert Thomas Rigler, emigrated to Australia in 1908 , after family arguments, and was subsequently killed on the Somme in 1916. His younger brother, Alfred Rigler, took over the business in 1924, which soon amalgamated with (was taken over by?) Bradford & Sons Ltd, Coal Factors of Yeovil.

The first indication of brewing at the Ram Inn was from 1576 when a Humphrey Langridge was recorded as a ‘beer-brewer at Wandsworth’, then a village in Surrey. The brewery was eventually taken over in 1831 by Charles Young and Anthony Bainbridge. Since then it has been associated with the Young family, the last chairman was John Young, the great-great-grandson of the founder. Young & Co closed its brewery in 2005 to concentrate on its 220 tied public houses, selling the land to property developers, and out-sourcing its brewing interests to Charles Wells Ltd of Bedford.
