GWR  13 Ton  Toad Brake Van
Diagram AA7

  PROTOTYPE. Twelve of these short wheelbase vans were built in 1898 originally for working in the London area and stationed at Acton. They were 9ft wheelbase and 16ft over headstocks.

  It can only be assumed that space for headshunts and sidings was at such a premium in the Metropolis that such a short brake van was required to fit into them. A situation that is familiar to many of us on our own layouts. These vans lasted into BR days.

  KIT. Construction is very straightforward, but there is a lot of push-out rivet detail, which can take some time to form. A pre-rolled brass roof is provided, as is straight brass wire for the handrails. The fit of all parts is very good.
