The naming of vans in the depot list is inconsistent: some have an indication of the capacity between () like (small) or (middle). And some lack any indication.

Fix: make capacity indication of wagons consistent (closes #3875)

This is more or less part of #3646 as well.
I couldn't really find a suitable word for something smaller than "small", so I left it blank for now. Suggestions to this extent are welcome :)

I didn't really like "very small". And then I was out of ideas...

How about "tiny", "original", "standard" ??

I thought about original too but define original :). But I must admit the same goes for middle.

How about depending on year of introduction:
before 1900 "ancient"
1900<1940 "old"
1940<1980 "classic"
1980<2020 "modern"
after 2020 "futuristic"

or something similar

I rather have something that indicates the capacity. That one thing is newer than the other is already implicitly defined by the order of the vehicles. Well, capacity too as newer generally means higher capacity. But still :D

Tiny can work. Myself I was thinking x-small, but that doesn't translate well. "Mini" maybe be an option as well.

Or just avoid this whole issue and go small-medium-large-huge. But that gives the situation that modern wagons will be called 'huge', where I rather just call them 'large' and keep huge for the odd exception.

Why bothering with words that could also represent a problem when translated into other languages?

XS = very small
S = Small
M = medium
L = large
XL = very large
XXL = very very large

That's probably the best idea so far. Especially since it doesn't take much space :)
