1950s BR standard 10ft wb vans. British Railways retained the 10 feet wheelbase RCH 17ft 6in chassis for their new standard wagon designs in the 1950s. Following LMS and LNER practice the covered box vans had pressed corrugated steel ends and the design allowed for planked or plywood sides. The same basic body was used for a number of specialist vans, insulated vans with no end vents, meat vans with extra ventilators. Many of these vans were used in the general pool when not needed for the designed purposes, an easy excuse for a special van to arrive on your layout.
