The Southern Railways' standard brake van design did not emerge until 1928 using the heavy underframe from the SE&CR design van fitted with a very short central cabin body, quickly earning the nickname of 'pill boxes'.  Most importantly though the vans did have a reputation for good riding and having a good brake.
Model finished in British Railways goods grey livery.
The Southern vans seem to have stayed little from former SR routes even under British Railways ownership, though the type is an ideal companion for Dapols' Terrier locomotives and an excellent alternative to the similar BR standard design vans to add variety to goods trains.

Representing the beginning of the British Railways era this model carries the Southern Railway's brown goods wagon livery with red ends for the brake van but with the British Railways S prefixed number.
A great number of wagons and brake vans would have run in their existing liveries in the years after nationalisation, The region prefix letter was essential as many wagon numbers were duplicated between their previous owners and was applied quickly.

Construction of the Southern Railway standard brake van design was adapted in the late 1930s to use the distinctive SR 2+2 planking style, with alternating pairs of standard and narrow width planks.
This model represents one of these later vans in British Railways service, painted in BR goods grey livery.
An ideal companion for Dapols' Terrier locomotives and an excellent alternative to the similar BR standard design brake vans. These ex-Southern vans moved around more under British Railways ownership, with several appearing in the North East area where their extra weight was no doubt appreciated when controlling heavy coal trains.
