20 Ton Toad Brake Van BR Grey

A nicely detailed model of the standard GWR design of guard's brake van, with the distinctive large enclosed verandah painted in the British Railways goods grey livery.
The ex-GWR brake vans were gradually withdrawn from general use under BR ownership as the brake wheel was outside the cabin, but many continued in service on Western region anyway. This van is labelled as being allocated to Newton Abbott and being in restricted use (RU) on goods trains around it's South Devon depot.
Later the engineers found the enclosed verandahs to be most useful for the secure storage of tools etc, resulting the GWR vans being found all over the BR network well into the 1980s!


Branchline models are designed to be a consistent size that is known as OO scale. Our models are large enough to incorporate a high level of detail as well as many additional features such as directional lighting, sound effects and digital.

OO scale models run on a track with a gap of 16.5mm between the running rails and this track gauge is the most popular in the world
