steam mail van is missing in 1900's

I want to buy new mail vans in 1903, but I could not find any mail vans. Should I buy new horses in this year?

Do you have "Allow Buying obsolete vehicles" on? This allows you to buy vehicles that are no longer available. So, you would be able to buy earlier steam engines.

On my server, the option is turned off. However other Thornycroft vans are still available, so there's no reason to retire.

Thank you for letting me know. I notice that the next mechanically propelled mail carrying vehicle is not available until April 1904, so I have moved the retirement date on until after then.
