This kit builds a model of the first LNER standard design of good brake van.
Introduced in 1924 the design was derived from the final GNR and NER designs and was designated by telegraph code 'Toad B', most identifiable from later vans by the retention of wooden lookout duckets. Built in Doncaster, 260 examples entered service, lasting until replacement British Railways brake vans entered service in the 1950s. Various modifications took place over the years, this kit best representing prototypes dating from 1928-9.
Parkside has built up a reputation for high-quality kits of the more rarer wagon types, and this one in particular will fill a gap. The kits contain everything the modeller needs except glue, paint and a few tools. Crisply moulded plastic parts, supplemented by metal wheels, bearing cups and three-link couplings, plus transfers.
