Blue Circle Vent Van

Hi, can anyone help me identify what time scale the wagon shown below, would of been seen on British Railways? Or is it a fictional livery?
I have a small rake of these, would I need to run the train with a brake van? I intend to run with a 4F or 8F.
Any advice is greatly appreciated, many thanks, Joe

It's fictional. But if you are happy with it as a generic representation of steam era private owner wagons (of which there were types surviving for specialised traffic operating in the BR steam era), then a brakevan on the end of the train is a must, and an appropriate freight engine like the 4F and 8F on the front, and off you go.
