Model announced 2013.
The LMS adopted the final design of Midland Railway guards' brake van as the companys' initial standard design. The cabin provided good accomodation for the guard with the handbrake standard in the centre of the van, easily and quickly accessible, and access verandhs at both ends made boarding easy.
While longer than ordinary goods wagons the short brake van did not ride well at the higher speeds which goods trains were attaining in the 1930s and this design was replaced by long wheelbase vans, but with several thousand of these brake vans in service many remained in us into the 1960s.
This model is painted in the early BR goods grey livery.
