Brake Vans

Post by glencairn »

Three photographs of a couple of different types of Brake Vans seen at 'Locomotion' in Shildon.

Maybe someone may be interested in modelling either (or both)?

The bogie 'Queen Mary' van is still available from Bachmann in OO, albeit that is a fairly old moulding nowadays.

The other van looks like a standard BR 20T van (or maybe an LNER one, as it has shorter footboards) but has had extra panels added as balconies: could that be a modification for the preserved railway to offer brake van rides to the public?

Having ridden on the balcony at locomotion I can confirm that it's a modification for that purpose.
