New tooling has replaced the original Farish GWR 'Toad' brake van model, bringing the model up to the standards of new models.
This is a detailed model of the GWR standard long wheelbase brake van with the distinctive large verandah at one end. This model is painted in the early British Railways goods grey livery.
British Railways standard brake vans with the brake wheel inside the cabin replaced these ex-GWR vans in the 1950s, but the surplus GWR vans with a large cabin and enclosed verandah were eagerly adopted by the engineers, quickly finding new homes all across the network.
