Currently, vehicle introduction dates and lifetimes are not visible in case of wagons and coaches (on buying window).
They should be made visible, which they have always been on locomotives and multiple units. It would unify visible data behaviour on the list.

Additionally, vehicle loading speeds are not currently visible, should they be?

I don't see why the introduction date or lifetime of wagons is relevant; those only matter for locos because of reliability. On the other hand, loading speed would be rather helpful to have available.

Loco intro dates are irrelevant to the game too, but that information is displayed.

Actually, to me, it's very relevant to the game. I can see when each locos are introduced in the game approximately, which helps me when I want to upgrade my locos. I can sure use the same information for the wagons.

I think introduction dates and lifetimes do matter on every rolling stock type, because for example, Finnish Trainset has 5 generations of wagons/coaches/multiple units/locomotives, and I, as a developer of set, would prefer that buying list shows all relevant information in all cases at the same style (with Introduction dates and lifetimes shown in wagons and coaches too). It is important thing, because that gives player information, that when (s)he may begin replacing his/her wagons/coaches with next generation ones.

You could look at the Dutch Trainset, that displays all kinds of additional information in the purchase window already.

Those things are applied trough NewGRF additional info (means additional work). Introduction dates are always coded in a trainset, it is a case of showing them, and it would help to see other set's wagons and coaches introduction dates and lifetimes without additional coding work on them. It should be OpenTTD's feature in the first place.
