History In Service
The Goods Brake Van was used mainly on goods trains for the transportation of goods, parcels, mail, departmental goods and passengers in second class accommodation, both smoking and non-smoking. Built in the 1890’s through to 1920 they survived into the 1960’s and 1970’s. They were originally painted regal red, which faded to brown. A couple of vans received the hawthorn green and cream paint scheme in 1936.
